Dear Rev. King:

We are expecting you to preach on the fourth Sunday, February 28, 1954.

I will be out of the city as I explained to you before. Rev. Edward C. Simmons will be in charge of the service and will take care of you.

Please call the office when you are in the city so that they will be sure and know that you are here.

I will be away and it will be difficult to make any change. Let nothing happen to you. We are expecting you dead or alive.

Yours in Christ,
A. A. Banks, Jr., Pastor
Second Baptist Church of Detroit
