Letter in Spanish regarding the delivery of clothing for the children of Spain, written on the stationery of The Hillsboro hotel. Isabel de Oyarzábal (she used the name Isabel de Palencia on the letter) was part of the three-member delegation sent by the Spanish government, under the auspices of the American Friends of Spanish Democracy, to raise support for the Spanish Republic in the United States and Canada. She came to Tampa in November of 1936 hoping to be allowed to address the delegates attending the American Federation of Labor convention, but her request was not granted.
