Jones, president of Raven Camp School in Colfax, asks for a copy of King’s sermon “The Three Dimensions of a Complete Life,” delivered at Tuskegee Institute’s chapel on 31 July.

Dr. M. L. King Jr.
309 South Jackson St.
Montgomery, Alabama

Dear Dr. King:

After listening to your wonderful sermon in Tuskegee’s Chapel a few sundays ago entitled, “The Three Dimensions of Life” I became rather inspired, so inspired, that I would appreciate having a copy of that particular sermon. Whatever method is used for securing a copy of such sermon, I am willing to apply.

Very truly yours,
Sylvester Jones
