Lieutenant Colonel Charles Young,
Letterman General Hospital,
The Presidio,
San Francisco, California.
Dear Colonel Young:

      Dr. Moton and I have had a long and serious confer-

ence over the injustice which we think is about to be 

perpetrated in the particular matter of ordering you to 

the hospital, and the upshot of it has been that I have 

made up a collection of editorial reviews and articles 

which have appeared in the colored newspapers, and we 

have drafted a letter which has been sent to His Excel-

lency, The President, which we hope will halt this pro-

cedure.  Other friends are also at work in the matter 

so that action may not be taken by default.

	Many things are happening these days to discourage 


					Very truly yours,

					Emmett Scott
