[Page 1] [Inserted Text in left hand margin:June 9, 1967] Martin Luther King Southern Christian Leadership Conference 332 Auburn Avenue N. E. Atlanta, Ga 30303 Dear Martin Luther King, We wish to thank you for your courageous stand against militarism. Advising noncooperation with our country's activities in Vietnam is not a popular position, but it is hard to see how [Page 2] we can preach non-violence at home and ignore the violence abroad. We send you out deep thanks and moral support. To back up our moral support we are enclosing a check for SCLC [Southern Christian Leadership Conference]. Most sincerely, [Closing Signature: Ann and George Levinger]
