[Page 1] December 7, 1967 [Stamp in black ink: Received Dec[ember] 11, 1967] Dear Dr. King, We enclose a clipping from our Herald-Examiner of last evening taken from Walter Winchell's column for your perusal. Has it occurred to you that you [Underlined: could] be wrong in the course you are following? You are doing your race more harm than good, in my opinion. Sincerely [Closing Signature: Mr. and Mrs. J. V. Jones]
