Chapel Hill, N.C.

Senator Sam J Ervin
United States Senate
Washington, D.C.
Dear Senator Ervin,

I feel the greatest service you can do for equal rights for all the people of our great nation is not to block or help block the civil rights bill. I urge you to reconsider your position for the good of North Carolina, the South, and the United States. I was born in North Carolina and I have lived in this state all of my life (except for two years in the army). I am a Democrat. I am White.

Respectfully,

Robert T. Krimsey, Jr.
