Der M yor Allen :
I JDUSt nted to s end long my sentiments for what they re worth t o
support your statement bout the nominati on of Lester M ddox hi ch 1 s
broadcast on CBS televi sion t onight.
I h ve b en ble t o view your .ctiviti s on n t ionwi de television
on other occ sions--e . g. , the Atlanta riots . From .11 indications I perceived
y ou s
man who was honest1y trying to do the best job he could. I lso
perc ived you s
fir person who 1as 'lling to try to understand the views
of others and to do something about the plight of the slum-dwellers--be t hey
Negro or White. In short , I have been very impressed with mat I h ve s en
of your a.pp rent attitude and ction in times of crises and controversy .
I am quite sure it is very hard on you t tim.es to stand in the face of
bigotry and hatred , but I want ed you te> know t h t t least one person a.cross
the country - ants to give you some reinforcement and to urge you to continue
in your attempts to make ~t la.nta, nd coneequent1y America , a better place for
a human eing to live in.
Although I ri.11 most like1y never have a chance to vote for you, I hope
ctions concerning the civil rights issues
and this Maddox "tr gedy" -will act s a positive influence for your future
behavior . Atlant , and then tion, can be proud of you.
my encouragement for your stands and
Sincerely,
