Description

Letter from a resident of Wilmington, Delaware, to Louise Day Hicks about his neighborhood's efforts to form a citizen's committee in Wilmington against the government "take-over" of his county's school system. The resident claims that the aim of the committee is to protect the rights of citizens and to aid other citizens threatened by the government. The letter also states that the citizens committee is aiming to convince members of the Senate who voted against anti-busing legislation. The letter mentions then Senator Joe Biden as a possible candidate in the future.
