Dear Jewelle,

This is just a note to thank you for your very kind letter. It was a real pleasure hearing from you. I can assure you that all of your encouraging words will be long remembered.

We are still involved in the non-violent protest against injustice, and we plan to be in it until the finish. I have been profoundly moved by the discipline, wise restraint and dignity by which our people have carried on this protest. I feel that it has given the Negro a new sense of dignity.

I am very happy to know of your progress since finishing Radcliffe and above all your intentions of being married in August. May I extend my congratulations at this point. Coretta and the baby are doing fine and she sends her best regards.

With warm personal regards.

Very sincerely yours,
