Mayor Ivan Allen
City Hall
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mayor Allen:
When you were active in Scouting I had a great admiration for
you. I thought you gave us wonderful leadership and I was real proud
to have the opportunity of working with you. Never was I as proud of
you as I was after noting how you handled the disorder which erupted
in Atlanta on Monday of this week. You have given Atlanta wonderful
leadership and I think your courageous handling of the racial disturbance will do a great deal to prevent others from occarring.
I think there -are very few who -want to see the colored race mistreated. On the other hand, we do not feel that they should be permitted to completely take over and have no regard for law and order.
In this respect, you handled the situation in a very noble manner.
My
congratulations to you, Mayor Allen!
Sincerely,
HUBBA'R.D PANTS COMPANY
