Morgenthau Not Interested in Anti-jewish Publisher

See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Reports that Henry Morgenthau, former ambassador to Turkey is financially interested in The World’s Work and the publishing firm of Doubleday, Page and Company, publishers of Burton J. Hendricks’ “The Jews of America” were declared without foundation today in a letter by Mr. Morgenthau to Herman Bernstein, editor of the “Jewish Tribune.”

“I have never been and am not now interested financially, directly or indirectly, in the World’s Work or in Doubleday, Page and Company, ” Mr. Morgenthau asserts.

Mr. Bernstein directed his inquiry to Mr. Morgenthau following a query by Samuel Untermyer as to whether Mr. Morgenthau is interested in the publishers of this book. “If he is.” continued Mr. Untermyer. “I hope that he will cease to be identified with a publishing house that has brought out a book so manifestly unjust.”
