Return to St. Augustine Civil Rights




May 8, 1963

Dear Mr. President:

I am forced to agree 100% with the enclosed letter, and I am therefore formally requesting that you consider
disassociating yourself from the Commission to celebrate the Quadricentennial of St. Augustine, Florida, and that
Federal funds and facilities not be made available.

With every good wish.

Sincerely,

Adam C. Powell
Chairman

The Honorable
President of the United States
The White House
Washington, D. C.
