City Hall
Boston Mass.

Dear Sir,

This letter is in reference to your stand on school busing. I consider it Party Dictatorship.

I am enclosing a copy of a phrase intitled "Democracy".

You have my permission to have copies made for distribution, free to the people of Boston, in order to defeat Bussing. You may do so at no charge of "Democracy" piece of literature, for said purpose.

                                                              Sincerely,

                                                              [Redacted]

                                                           Jacksonville, Fla.
