  • Text: October 3 1966 Dear Mayor Allen, I am writing simply to say that I am proud to have you as Mayor of our city. I have always supported you, but along with many others, I don't think I realized what kind of man you we re until our recent "riots". I believe that you really care about Atlanta in a very personal way. The main reason for my writing this though is because of your stand on our "political race" held last week. Many lea de rs must have shared your v iew that it was "deplorable", yet how many said so? Only you and Congressman Weltner, who has given up a lot for his conviction. Again, thank you for being a "strong" leader and for caring about our great city . Sincerely, 7Jfw . vlr rf0/;~cl Mrs. Guy

However, I was astounded to hear you attack him with ridicule in a press conference last night . Mr. Maddox thrives on ridicule. He has gained a great deal of support from misguided sympathy and continued sarcastic attacks on him will serve only to increase his support. Please let us defeat Mr. Maddox on other grounds . We do not believe he is capable or qualified and should have no hesitation in saying so but let us not make a martyr of him since such action will only insure his victory in the general election.

Mayor of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor All en: How refreshing it was to read your statement on the results of the elec tion September 28th .! Every word of it was true and I think you analyzed the situat i on exactly. Yo u are t o be commended for having the courage to say it. The pity is that others in high official position in our State and National government a re silent in the presence of a possible catast rophe facing Georgia. As a Georgian I feel a s hamed before the world because of what happened . As a lawyer, I shudder with overwhe lming dismay at the thought that the nominee of the Democratic party might have an opportunity to appointment more than one-half of the members of the Georgia Supreme Court. Four of the seven members of the Court are more than 72 years of age ; one is 75 . Even the three youngest members are 6 2, 60 and 57 years of age r esp e ctively. · Every Georgian will need to search h is own conscience between now and the General Election. As for me, if I must embrace Maddox t o save the Democratic party, it is not worth saving in Georgia. I hop e I shall have the pl ea s ure of meeting y ou sometime . Emor y F. Robin son EFR/ gm �
