October 15th 1964 Dear Coretta, The great honor that has come to Martin is something in which you share most significantly: your patience has always won out over the unavoidable annoyances - your understanding has always helped Martin to be free to persue [pursue] his vision and his mission. I am deeply gratified & happy for both of you! [As?] ever, Joan.
