Dear Mr. West:
This is just a note again to express my appreciation to you for making my recent visit to Cornell College so enjoyable and meaningful. The experience was rich indeed. I hope that in some little way my message served to shed light on the difficult problem of racial injustice which we confront in our nation. Please extend my warm best wishes to the many friends I met at Cornell.
