Letter from MLK to Mrs. White
Transcripts & Translations


Dear Mrs. White, Thank you for year letter of May 3, 1964. I am sorry for this delay, but my duties as Pres[ident] of SCLC [Southern Christian Leadership Conference] have kept me extremely busy during the past year. Concerning your request for assistance, I hope that some settlement has been made by now, but it if hasn't my recommendation is to apply for assistance with the city and state welfare boards. Hopefully, they will be able to supplement the pension your husband is personally receiving. I am sorry to hear that your husband has been impaired and pray God will see you through this trial. [Crossed Out: and yo] [Inserted Text: and your family] [Closing Signature: M[artin] L[uther] K[ing]
