Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr.
City Hall

68 Mitchell Street, S. W.
Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Mayor Allen:

As a native Atlantan for over fifty years, I wish to express
my commendation for the stand which you have taken in the
recent unrest caused by a portion of our Negro populace.

Many people seem to overlook the fact that the Negro race,
particularly as we know it in the South, is endowed with

certain inherent characteristics which give vent to a status
paralleling a parent-child association. Strona and influ-

ential guidance is necessary but an occasional scolding or spank-
ing has proven to be a necessary incredient to proper "up-
bringing". Certainly, lawlessness, violence and disregard for
the rights and property of others has no place in our society.

It hasn't been too long ago when people were apprehended and
punished for merely disturbing the peace,

Today strong leadership is called for, and many of us believe
that the leader who gets there "firstest with the mostest" will

Sincerely yours
