I had seen the editorial in the New York Times, and I think it is excellent and very complimentary. B est of luck to you on the next time around. Although m y position has received very favorable national commendation, it has not been very comfortable here in Atlanta. In general. our business friends have really been upset, and I have had to bear constant criticisrn. I felt that I was right, and I have not changed any of my opinions. We leave next week for Nairobi where Louis will join us for a 4-week Salad. The " we is Inman and myself. Thi is my first time away from the office since I have been here, and I am looking forward to it greatly. Let me know what I your plans ar this Fall, and if you have any !r e time to come down in Novemb r or D cember, we will sp nd a full week at the F rm, which now has the added ttraction of going fishing as 11 as good hunting. It i not the same type of fishing that you and I have enjoyed at Homosassa, but it is still good. With high st personal regards, I am Sine rely yours. Ivan All M yor IAJr/ o n. Jr. , �

City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen : May I offer my warmest and most sincere commendation and congratulations on the statement that you made before the Senate Commerce Sub-Committee last week. It was a courageous position to take, to be sure, but, to my mind, it was more than that. You expressed the thoughtful concern of the decent citizens of Atlanta for the inherent rights of all our citizens and for the need to assure the Negro community of its full rights as Amercians and as Georgians. I know that many Atlantans join with me in unequivocal support of your position. If there is anything that I can do to help maintain Atlanta's progress in the field of race relations, I hope that you will feel free to call upon me. Janice joins me in warmest regards to you and Mrs . Allen. sincerely, JMR/eks ~ �

Dear Mr. Mayor: The television news reports and the newspaper accounts of your appearance before the Senate commi t t ee on the civil rights issue left me proud of the city of my b i rth tonight. Don't let the "junior" on my name fool you; I was a r eporte r for the old Georgian-American when Bill Ha r tsfie l d was a young alderman in 1926. I followed his act i ons in preventing racial discord when he was ma y or , and liked the way he handled ma tters. Now you have proved more than a worthy successor, in my view; you 've gone a step f urther, a long step . Economic integration cannot b e withheld any long e r. I t is inevitable ; it mus t come. Soeial integration is an other ma t t er. We have no choi ce on the f ormer; we do ha ve a choi ce on the latter. This is one of the key a r eas of reas oning, in my view. I f i t has been us ed i n t reating with t he die hards, it has not been so rep orted in the press of the North, where I have lived most · of my adult years. It may be worth considering as we painfully creep toward giving the Neg ro his long overdue due. It may possibly be an argument to use in hastening the day of equal economic rights and treatment. �

Among all the millions of words that have been spoken and written on both sides of the segregation-integration issue , your statement stands out as a model of integrity and as a rare example of what the United States of America really represents. I feel certain that millions of others throughout this nation, no matter what their racial, ethnic, or religious backgrounds, join me in extending genuine gratitude for your statement. Several years ago, I had the good fortune to spend some time in Atlanta. I found it a beautiful, energetic, and thoroughly gracious city. I do not know if you were mayor at that time , but I am certain that your administration has helped to make Atlanta a still finer city. I send you my best wishes for continued success and my hopes that your civic career will prosper. Your statement marks you as one of an all too rare breed of public official.
