Rev. M. L. King, Jr.
Pastor, Dexter Avenue Baptist Church
Montgomery, Alabama

Dear Rev. King:

I shall expect you to attend the meeting of the Advisory Council on literature and curriculum at the Sunday School Publishing Board Fourth Avenue and Charlotte on March 23rd and 24th, 1955. If you have written me that you cannot attend both days, then attend the day that’s best for you.

Your expenses will be paid in the attendance of this meeting.

I should like for you to come prepared with ideas and plans as to the quality and critical analysis of our literature and plans as to our curriculum and leadership training.

Very truly yours,
Roland Smith, Secretary
National Baptist Training Union Board
