Dear Mr. Warren:
I am enclosing for your use a rewrite on a chapter for your Anthology, on that section dealing with my career.
I thank you for the opportunity of seeing this material and I trust you will find everything in order.
With every good wish.
Very truly yours,
ADAM C. POWELL
Mr. Robert Penn Warren
West Wardsboro, Vermont.
no one can doubt that Adam Clayton Powell is a real spokesman for the Negro, by and with their own choice; over a span of 30 years, he is perhaps their greatest spokesman.
