Description

This letter was sent to Judge W. Arthur Garrity by a Boston church representative to invite him to a prayer breakfast for Boston Public Schools. The breakfast was sponsored by the Ecumenical Committee for Safety and Education and held at the Boston Sheraton on September 7, 1974, to coincide with the beginning of the school year. The breakfast welcomed all Judeo-Christian faiths and sought to pray for peace as integration was carried out.
