Walter Lippmann Letter to June Bingham

New York Herald Tribune
3525 Woodley Road, NW
Washington 16, D.C.
January 19, 1969

Mrs. Jonathan Bingham
5000 Independence Avenue
Riverdale 71, New York

Dear Mrs. Bingham:
That is a very good letter, but I suppose it was not published, because of the rule not to print letters about articles written by columnists.

I am glad that you are writing about Niebuhr. I rate him in the very highest rank of thinkers produced in this country during this century.

Cordially,
Walter Lippmann
