Attn: Joseph P. Tumulty
Secretary to the President
United States
White House
Washington, DC

Dear Sir;-
It is due to the President, it is due to Mrs. LaFollette, it is due to Mr. Villard. It is due to the progressive sentiment of the country that supported the Democrats. It is also due to such, that the great Anti-segregation meeting at Washington be answered, and answered in such fashion to make it available as an efficient and effective campaign document.

By the way, Mr. Eddie Sefton Asst. Secretary National Democratic Nomination Committee advised you as to the strength of my specially prepared campaign documents at the meeting of the chairmen, and how most effectively used.

In four matters at Rierdon [?] all that I said will afford ample opportunity for this.

Very truly yours,
Thomas P. Riley
