Dear Chaplin Rogers:

All week long members have been telling me of the effectiveness of your message to our congregation on Sunday before last. I am indeed grateful to you for the excellent contributions that you have made to our congregation on both occasions of my absence. You can be assured that you have a standing invitation to come to Dexter.

I hope in the very near future it will be possible for me to meet you. With every good wish, I am

Sincerely Yours,
M. L. King, Jr.
