Jan. 14, 1941: Open letter to Al Jolson. My Dear Al: If this letter angers you, forgive me. I realize that the $500 you sent me before Christmas to spread good cheer among the poor was accompanied by a request that I make no mention of your kind deed.

But I've been weighing that request for three weeks and even though I am violating a confidence, I've decided to tell the story.

Also on the jump: British bombers hit Bayreuth.
