Atlanta 10, Georgia

February 16, 1963

The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr.
Mayor of Atlanta, Georgia
Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Mayor Allen:
This letter will confirm our telephone conversation of February 12, 1963.

On March 5, 1963, all of Mr. F. E. Bennett's property in the Utoy-Peyton Forest Sub-
division will be foreclosed upon. We are put in the position of having to bid upon and
possibly purchase this property. Of course, we have no way of knowing who will bid
on this property or what price they intend to pay.

Subject property will be sold as two (2) separate groups; i.e., his home place with
approximately 15 acres, and 15 vacant lots. Foreclosure action on the home place and
acreage is being initiated by Mr. Bennett himself, through an employee of his. Fore-
closure action on the 15 lots is being initiated by Phoenix, Inc., who holds a $26,000
mortgage on these lots.

The Southwest Citizens Association intends to bid upon and, if necessary, purchase

both groups of these properties. However, it would be of great advantage to us if these
two groups of properties were not being foreclosed upon on the same day. Since we can-
not control Mr. Bennett's actions, we were hopeful that Phoenix, Inc., could be per-
suaded to postpone their foreclosure action until the following month. We would be
most happy to pay all cost pertaining to this postponement and would be most grateful.

Anything that you might be able to do toward persuading Phoenix, Inc., to postpone
their foreclosure action until April would be most appreciated.

Also, | might add that it would be of additional benefit to us if Phoenix, Inc., did not
notify Mr. Bennett that they intended to postpone their foreclosure action until next

| will be more than happy to furnish you with any additional information that may be
required or to meet with the people at Phoenix, Inc., and discuss this request.

The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr.
February 16, 1963

| can assure you that every member of this organization is very grateful for your wonder-
ful support and will be most appreciative of anything you can do toward satisfying this

Sincerely yours,
C)iGee. Qog Qe OF

V.M. Copeland, President
Southwest Citizens Association, Inc.

Enclosure: (1) Letter, dated Jan. 18, 1963, R. L. Marchman, Hansell, Post, Brandon
& Dorsey, to Walter Me McGriff/Virgil Copeland
