Honorable liayor Allen
City of Atlanta
Dear Mr. Mayor:
Last night, Thursday, I saw you on the news on NBC-TV in
Chicago. It was good to hear you speak out, unequivocally,
concerning the nomination of Lester l.addox.
I felt saddened at his nomination: to think thet so many
persons would gravitate toward a man who stands for what he professes
Also, I thought it was brave of you to attempt to stop the
recent riots in Atlanta by appearing on the scene and publicly
exposing yourself to extreme danger by appealing to the crowd
from atop a car.
I am certain there are many many more persons in this country
who feel as 1 do, but who do not write and say so.
Keep trying to inject reason and sanity into the situation
