Bartolomeo Vanzetti autographed letter signed to Carissimi Compagni [Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee], [Charlestown], 23 November 1926
Discussing Prometeo Mazzanti's request for autographs and a few thoughts from Vanzetti and Sacco to be published in "Critica", and his suspicions; referring to Joseph Moro; and asking for a copy of Debs: His Authorized Life and Letters. Translation: “As I already told Morro, have received letter from Prometeo Mazzanti, Consular officer of Argentina in New York of which I am sending a copy. Vanzetti was first going to give him what he wanted, i.e., something to be published in “Critica but then realized that the anarchist publication of Buenos Aires is “La Protesta and now wonders what exactly is the tenor of “Critica and who is Prometeo Mazzanti. “Critica might have different political directions. There may be safer ways to involve Argentina. He is suspicious. Please answer soon, let me know what you find out. “The metal arrived today. The worker said that for Wednesday all will be ready. Asks him to come sometime for diner, but sympathizes that there may be better things for him to do.
