Peoria Ill[inois] April 18,1967 [Stamp in red ink: Apr[il] 21 1967] Doctor King, I would like to convey to you my deep appreciation for what you are doing for all the people on this poor miserable country. The people of the United States sorely need some one to look up to. When I observe those cruel, heartless leaders in Washington, DC. I almost despair! It seems that they intend to save the people of Vietnam if they have to kill everyone of them. Doctor King, please for all of us, keep on with your good work. We, the people, need you. Thank you again for all of you have done. With Heartfelt respect, Mrs. Genevieve Fay 623 E[East] Frye Ave[avenue] Peoria, Ill[Illinois]
