Dear Mr Allen
You won't remamber me but about eight years ago I was a guest
in your office for a day. For ten years I had been advertis-
ing manager of Horders and my superiots thought it would be ed-

ucational for me to see how you handled your advertising, and

it wase

Sometime after that Cort Horr showed me some data about your

then plan to try for the governorship and I think I recall your
statement that as of then you were quite dim about integration.
These things come back to me as I read about your racial prob-
lems and I think it in order to write to commend you on the states-
manlike attid@ude you have taken in handling them. Your personal
courage is also noteworthy. The state of Georgia has much to

do to catch up with the procession but the mayor of Atlanta

has shown outstanding leadership. ,More power to you
