Description

These two letters were sent between Louise Day Hicks and a resident of Wrentham. The latter writes to Hicks to express appreciation for Hick's organization of R.O.A.R. The author acknowledges the many religious leaders who have spoken out against the organization and belittles their authority and position. The author also suggests a political strategy to stifle the religious community's opposition. In her response, Hicks refers to the same group as "religious do-gooders" and indicates that their advocacy might be unlawful given churches' tax-exempt status.
