Transcripts & Translations


65 East 50th Chicago, Illinois February 8, 1968 Dear Dr. King, I am writing this letter in order to comment on the work you have done for the negroes and the work you are doing now. I think you have done a good job in all of your work. I know that I am too young to do any active movement regarding the problem of equal rights but if I was old enough, I would do as much as I could. First of all if both white and black work together to solve the problem [,] a decision is bound to come. And also be sure that both races agree on the final decision. This is all I have to say, except that you will be as successful in the future as you were in the past. Sincerely yours, Ethel Harvey P.S. ? Please write back!
