[Top right hand margin: April 11, 1968 Toccoa, Georgia] Dear Mrs. [Misses] King, I wish to express my sympathy to you in this time of loss. The World has lost a man of dignity and courage. Truly a man of greatest integrity. I am ashamed because of the indignity, which took Dr. [Doctor] King's life. He has given us so much. "Greater Love hath no man, than he will lay down his life for his friend. [Handwritten signature: Jerry Russell]
