Dear Stuart,

I have been very much interested in war posters and have done some, so when the National War Poster Competition was announced I wrote immediately to the Artists For Victory for information.

Enclosed is a copy of the answer I got from the assistant secretary, which is self explanatory.  I am also enclosing a copy of the letter I wrote to Le Boit.

Were you aware of such a stipulation? The Metropolitan Exhibition business also has the same discrimination.  I wish we could do something about this matter.

I hope you had a good an productive summer.  Best wishes to you both.
