[Fund solicitation letter from the head of the Confucian Society in San Francisco's Chinatown]

San Francisco: Confucian Society, 1941. Printed form letter on a single 8.5x11 inch sheet, printed one side in formal unpunctuated Chinese, with the organization's name and address in English. Unissued, very good. Has blank spots for filling in the date, thus although it begins with year 30 of the Republic (1941) a digit could be added, making the letter usable in following years.

The letter notes that every year on the 27th day of the 8th month on the Lunar calendar the society presents a performance to celebrate Christmas and support the Confucian School in San Francisco. Closes with a wish for "Victory in the resistance to Japan." The Confucian Society was established in 1929 by leaders of the Chinese Constitutionalist Democratic Party who had fled chaos and political repression in China.
