Mr. Harris Wofford, Jr.

Alexandria, Virginia

Dear Mr. Wofford:

This is to acknowledge receipt of you very kind letter of April 25. I was very happy to receive your very helpful suggestions. I assure you that I am taking all of them under consideration and using that which is possible. You have mastered both the technique and the spirit of Ghandi, and such wide experience in this area is always helpful in our struggle.

Always feel free to write and to give constructive criticism. I can assure you that they will always be accepted in the same noble and generous spirit they are given.

I have received your book and also the pamphlet that you sent. Please know that I am deeply grateful to you for your thoughtfulness at this time. Unfortunately, I have not had an opportunity to read the book because of the pressure of the present situation. As soon as I am somewhat relieved of this pressure, I will be reading your book.

With every good wish, I am

Sincerely yours,
M. L. King, Jr.,
