To the editors:

I usually only write to a paper when I am upset, however I am writing to you now because I thought Florence Hamlish Levinsohn's article on Mollie West was terrific ["A Radical Woman," April 16].

I have known Mollie for many years, so I knew something about her life. But, after reading Ms. Levinsohn's article, I realized how little I really knew. The article really got to the essence of Mollie and her lifelong commitment to justice.

I look forward to reading the Reader every week, but never have I enjoyed it so much as when I read the Mollie West article. Thank you very much for this article about an immigrant who made a difference.
