A fundraising newsletter for St. James House in Washington, D.C., a shelter for homeless men established on the model of Dorothy Day's St. Joseph's House of Hospitality in 1967. Offers news of the mission, still in its early days, and requests donations of cash and material goods. The daily routine is described: "The men, mostly Negro are from within walking distance, begin arriving at ten A.M. and we close the door at noon. Beans or split peas form the bse of the soup and bones are given free of charge from a local chain supermarket. Friends in Virginia, vegetable farmers, have generously provided us with large quantities of tomatoes, squash, and corn throughout the growing season. Soon we must go begging at the produce market in town. The soup is good (if we have to say so ourselves). We are striving to maintain our rating as 'The best soup on the radical left'..."
