Dear Mr. Cromie:
Thanks for the clipping of October 28, 1962 of the
review of "The Long Shadow of Little Rock" by Mr.
Mr. Purvis pointed out that "Mrs. Bates seems not to
have any room for tolerance of white persons nor under-
standing that they also have faced many of the diffi-
culties she wants cleared from the Negroes' path."
I am well aware of the hardships suffered by the many
whites who stand up for what they believe is right, as
I pointed out in Chapter 14 - "White Casualties."
I am also accutely aware that the number of whites who
are willing to speak out against racial discrimination
is far too small not only in the South but throughout
Please inform Mr. Purvis that I appreciate his review
and convey to him my warmest thoughts.
Daisy Bates (Mrs.)
