Oct[ober] 30, [19]67 Dr. Martin L[uther] King: Dear Sir: I am just a newspaper reader who realizes you are working ?anti-poverty.? I am over 52 y[ea]rs old, white and in not good health. I only want to use a few minutes of your time, if I may. Last February - 67, I sent in a dollar bill to a ?lucky bucks? contest. I did not win a prize, nor did they, a big company, return my dollar bill. I have registered mail receipt and can prove that I sent a dollar. Up to now they (the company) have not returned my dollar and they ignore me. I hope you could form an opinion about this, and if you believed I sent them a dollar, would you write them a few words asking them to return my dollar. Forgive me for taking up time with trivial matter ? but I am in the poor class. Respectfully, Mrs. [Juanita K.] Daily
