Congrats Dear Dr. King, [Stamp in Red Ink: JAN[uary] 11 1965] This is probably among the hundreds of congratulating notes you've received.

Again my congratulation upon receiving the Nobel Prize Award which you must certainly deserve. A very Happy + Healthy Holiday Season. Respectfully, [Closing Signature: Mrs. Phyllis Nissel]
