Dear Mr. Jones:

Thanks very much for your very complimentary letter concerning my sermon in the Tuskegee Chapel a few Sundays ago. Unfortunately, the sermon that I preached at Tuskegee is one of the sermons that I do not have written in manuscript form. However, since you have expressed an interest in its content, I will attempt at some future date to take some time out to write it. When this is done, I will be sure to mail you a copy.

With every good wish, I am

Sincerely yours,
Martin L. King, Jr.
