PERSONAL AND CONFIDENTIAL
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,
