Miss Nellie M. Craig
Dear Miss Craig:
This will acknowledge your correspondence and the enclosed questionnaire.
Your comments were most interesting and helpful. I agree with your concern that our newspapers are not doing the job they should.
I will give further consideration to your views on places of public accommodations. I do not altogether agree that any such places, except private clubs, can legally discriminate.
Thanks for your commendations of my Los Angeles Office and with reassurance of my personal interest in the problems discussed in your letter. I am,
AUGUSTUS F. HAWKINS, M. C.
