Brief letter written by Alice Stone Blackwell to Mr. Paine, offering assistance to the crew of the British merchant ship Linaria, who refused to put into port in Spain during the Spanish Civil War. She writes: "Dear Mr. Paine: Here is a small contribution for the heroic crew of the Linaria. I wish I felt able to send a big one. Yours cordially." Blackwell was an ardent political activist for most of her long life, and clearly supported the crew's boycott of Franco's regime.
