March 16, 1966
Dear Mr. Warren,
AS you probably know by now, I called your house on my way
through to N.Y. I am returning to Alabama tomorrow and I have several appointments
later. Your wife explained what happened and I thought something like that must
have happened. I have been missing you by a few days in several places. The
University of Alabama and Boston notably. If you will drop me a line telling
me when you will be in Tuskegee I will try and get there to hear you.
Yours for Freedom
[Handwritten at bottom of text:]
P.S. If you can spare any copies (paperbacks)
of WSFN. We would appreciate them.
