Dear Mr. Ingram:

I have enjoyed reading your kind letter of October 20th
in regards to my stand concerning Mr. Lester Maddox.

First, I hope you will exerc ise no concern over the Ivan
Allen Company employees or customers. Ivan Allen
Company has just finished its greatest year of growth and
continues to thrive under its present able leadership.

It is regrettable that you disagree so strongly with Mr.
Maddox's neighbors. Mr. Maddox lives in precienct 8-1,
which voted 1, 926 for Calloway and 154 for Mr, Maddox.
Precienct 8-lis part of the 8th Ward, which voted 15, 000
for Calloway and 1, 400 for Maddox.

It appears that those who live next door to Mr, Maddox and
know him best, voted the heaviest against him, in one of
the largest all-white areas of the State.

Iam enclosing a copy of the published returns from which I
quoted, Thanks again for your interest.


Ivan Allen, Jr.
