September 29, 1980 Hon. Brooks Hays 4701 Willard Ave. Chevy Chase, Md. 20015 Dear Brooks: Though belated I want to extend my heartiest congratulations to you on the occasion of the remarkable film, "Brooks Hays: Return to Little Rock". I want to tell you on this occasion that there have been few people who have touched my life more than the person of Brooks Hays. When there were times of doubt, you inspired faith, and when there were times of the ordinary and dullness, your inspiring humor has meant so much. Everybody has a favorite story about the Hays family, but mine is the cross-town police squad car lights blaring.... from the El Paso Airport to its country club where you delighted and moved all the NCCJ guests with your address. I remember Mrs. Hays saying, as we sped through the street, "Well we will surely have something to tell our grandchildren." Thank you both for your deep faith and inspiration over the many years. Cordially, Frank J. Magrath FJM/lk
