Honorabl e Ivan All en , Mayor
Cit y of At l anta
At l anta, Georgi a
Dear Ivan :
I t has be en my priv ile ge to watch the progress
At l ant a has made in i ts r ace re l a t ionship dur ing y our t enur e of off i c e . We can point wi th
pr ide t o our s ucce ss i n Col umbus a l s o , but,
Atlant a, be ing such a l ar ge cit y , woul d nat ura l l y be mor e i n t h e nationa l s cene than
Col umbus and i t ha s c er t ai nl y been not i ce a bl e
over the country that At lanta has had pr ogre ss
on s u cn a n amic ab le basis.
It is not my persona l opinion that the Negro
c i tizens in Atlanta a re to b l ame for th i s
outburst . The source of the troub l e i s f a r
more basic . It is certainly the fau l t of the
powers who countena nce such demonstration s
and ac t ua l ly encourage them .
We wish you every success in your progressive
program .
With best regards .
Sincere l y yours,
~~
