Text

Sir:

I take pleasure in acknowledging the receipt of your letter of August 28, transmitting a copy of the resolution relative to the Census of occupation statistics, adopted at the annual meeting of the National Negro Business League.

It is a gratification to me to learn that the action of the Census Bureau in showing in detail the occupation statistics for the negro meets with the approval of your organization; and I think I can assure you that it will be the policy of that Bureau, so far as practicable, to present statistics relating to negroes in the United States and its outlying possessions in detail, separate and distinct from other nonwhites.

Very truly yours,

[William C. Redfield]

Secretary.

Mr. Ralph W. Tyler, National Organizer,
The National Negro Business League,
928 T. St., N. W., Washington, D. C.
