Mayor
Atla, a, Georgia .
Dear Ivan:
In line with our rphone conversation of this morning, Mrs':' Barr
and I will be taking United Flig t 1umber 4- 73 on Monday morning, April 11th, at
eigh -thirty and will arrive in Atlanta a ten o vcl ock .
_,
I understand that you have arranged for a ccommodations for us
at the Marriott =otel. We are both self-sufficien· , so please do not put yourself out . I know how busy you are wi'h the affairs of the City and the extra
curricular duties connec· ed wi.th the opening of the baseball season in A-'·lanta.
We have acc epted the formal invitation for the dinner on Monday evep.ing and Alice and I a;:e looking forward to the opportunity of visiting
wi' h you and Mrs . Allen at that time .
Our reason for arriving so early is that my wife is not a
good flier and the only jet flight we can take, in order to get there in time
for the dinner on Monday evening, is at 8:30 in the morning.
I have made arrangements to leave there on Wednesday, April 13th
at twelve noon on United Flight Jumber 384.
~
I thin..'k the advent of Major League Baseball to Atlanta and the
whole southeast will be a great boon to our national pastime. I only hope that
you are as strong a baseball fan as I am, as the ownership and management of the
Pirates are peJsonal friends of mine .
As you are perhaps aware, we are in the midst of building a new
stadium in Pittsburgh for the Pirates and the Pittsburgh Steelers Football team.
With kind regards to you and Mrs . Allen, and looking forward to
seeing both of you on the 11th, I am
Sincerely yours,
\
