Long Description:

March 10, 1933. HAYS to JACK WARNER... I will appreciate it very much if I might have a reply, at an early date, indicating receipt of that letter [of March 7] and your understanding of the necessities in connection with the subject matter and assuring me of your support. In some instances previously it has been suggested that similar, though less definite, letters relative to like subject matters have not been received. The public responsibility is so great at this time in connection with the content of the pictures, and the necessity for care so great, that it is necessary for me to make certain, as an industry matter and personally, that these letters are received by the important factors in the industry, that they are understood, and that they will be supported. This is doubly important because of the fact that the Agreements mentioned in the letter will be absolutely enforced. I am writing a similar letter to those to whom the original letter was sent.
