Rev. M. L. King, Jr.
309 South Jackson Street
Montgomery, Alabama

Dear Rev. King:

I am expecting to be with you on the 27th, 28th, and 29th of April. I will be coming to Montgomery from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and it is impossible now to give the exact travel plans. There is a direct airline connection which makes it simple, but I have not bothered to get reservations from this far away.

Best wishes on your final examinations for your degree. As we say in Virginia, I am “tickled to death” over this.

Best regards,
