Dear Mrs. Hiller:

This is just a note to acknowledge receipt of your very helpful letter dated June 4. I am always open for constructive advice and I assure you that the things said in your letter were accepted with all humility. It is my great hope and prayer that I will be able to live up, with a real sense of humility and staggering simplicity, to the tremendous responsibility that has been invested in me as a leader. You are eminently correct in everything that you say. Please know that I am grateful to you for such advice.

With every good wish, I am

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

P.S. May I say that I am driving an old Pontiac and I never anticipate buying a Cadillac.
