RPW to Campbell Letter 2/1/66

In what appears to be a draft version of a letter, Warren replies to Janice Campbell regarding a reading at which he was scheduled to present his work.  Like John Updike, who had also been scheduled to attend, Warren indicates that he must withdraw due to SNCC's position on Vietnam.

Warren discusses the meaning of draft card burning and why he cannot support SNCC's stance on this issue; he withdraws with regrets and offers to help SNCC in other ways.  A postscript mentions the expulsion of Bond from his seat.
