Letter from MLK to Mr. Adelman
Transcripts & Translations


Dear Mr. Anderson, Thank you for your letter of July 7. I am sorry for this late reply but... I am grateful that you took the time and effort to bring this quote to my attention. Its applicability in both 1825 and 1965 is both cronic [chronic] and shocking. Your support of our work in the freedom struggle is appreciated and heartening. [Closing Signature: MLK]
