We wish to join with many others in pledging our support to you in your continuing efforts to preserve law and justice and a sense of reason among all the people of Atlanta. We commend your great courage in taking a personal hand in the control of these disturbances. Although your appearance at the sc e ne was b eyo nd the duties expected of the Mayor of Atlanta, ever y citizen should feel deep pride in what you did. W e do not ask our Mayor to endanger his life or safety, but having done so, you hav e caused each of us to feel taller as citizens. We are, naturally, concerned about the protection of private property, as well as the lives and well- b e ing of our peopl e. C e rtainly, we commend any effort toward strengthening th e means of this protec tion within the fram ew ork of our laws and institutions. Freedom should b e enjoyed by every citi ze n, but an e ngrain ed s ense of responsibility must be understood as a qualification of this freedom. The Atlanta R e al Estate Board, its officers, dir e ctors and members, stand b e hind you and the City Administration in your efforts to further these aims which we all share. Strong and effective leadership in these times is necessary and we applaud your exe rcis e of such leadership .

We wish to join with many others in pledging our support to you in your continuing efforts to preserve law and justice and a sense of reason among all the people of Atlanta. We commend your great courage in taking a personal hand in the control of these disturbances. Although your appearance at the sc e ne was b eyo nd the duties expected of the Mayor of Atlanta, ever y citizen should feel deep pride in what you did. W e do not ask our Mayor to endanger his life or safety, but having done so, you hav e caused each of us to feel taller as citizens. We are, naturally, concerned about the protection of private property, as well as the lives and well- b e ing of our peopl e. C e rtainly, we commend any effort toward strengthening th e means of this protec tion within the fram ew ork of our laws and institutions. Freedom should b e enjoyed by every citi ze n, but an e ngrain ed s ense of responsibility must be understood as a qualification of this freedom. The Atlanta R e al Estate Board, its officers, dir e ctors and members, stand b e hind you and the City Administration in your efforts to further these aims which we all share.
