Dear Friends:

This is exclusively a letter of thanks:

Churches unlike other institutions, depend entirely on the cooperation and fine christian spirit of people like you. So we want to tell you right now how much we appreciate your donation of One hundred dollars, ($100.00) made to our Building Fund. Your generous support is greatly appreciated.

The Dedication Services held on last Sunday will be long remembered. Your Pastor, Dr. Martin L. King Jr., delieverd a great sermon. We only wish that Dexter, in its entirety could have been here.

So thank you again for your part in helping our Church to meet its responsibilities in the task ahead.

Cordially yours,
[signed]
M. L. King, Sr.

MLK/w
