Dear :r,,r,r . Mayor,
I noticed a lett er on the window of Davis
Brothers' Restaurant today which said that he was "shocked"
at your testimony on The Civil Rights Bill that you gave
before the Committee . I want to add to his shock my shame,
and some of my neighbors who voted for you tell me that
they would not vote for you again, that they are outraged
by your stand on that issue , and also that you have spoiled
the parks for their children and charging us a big bill for
keeping the pools open to protect a few negroeis who are very
likely overpaid for doing what they are doi ng alreadye
Yours for defeat in the next el ection.
Sincerely,
p.
s.
You can count this letter as two , as my husband
agrees with me 100 Per Cent.
