Important 3-16-[19]68 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dear Dr. King: Have just received receipt for my last contribution. Since the entrance of Robert Kennedy into the Presidential race- I firmly believe that an appreciative token march could be effective to Washington-but not a show of force march - this year. Its true there is much to gain-but a sense of lets wait until Viet Nam [Vietnam] "is" settled until further pressure pledge to Kennedy-[MS:illegible] more. Johnson is full-headed over-riding Nationalism over there. Sincerely- [Closing Signature: Paul Kennedy]
