Lot 240: Two typed memos from Marian Bruce Logan to Martin Luther King, Jr., each six pages, 8.5 x 11, March 8, 1968, one of which is a draft extensively corrected and edited and the other a final typed version incorporating the revisions. The final draft is headed "1968 April Demonstrations in Washington D.C.," in part: "This memorandum crystallizes out of a series of discussions and communications I have had with you concerning my reservations about the SCLC-sponsored April Demonstrations in Washington, D.C…To illustrate the explosive potential of the situation: The Demonstrations, as I understand, may not exceed a total of 3,000 participants at any one stage. Yet the Washington authorities are ready to put—indeed, will put—into the streets more than 10,000 Federal policemen and troops. To say the least, this is an ominous sign of the repressive and violent new climate in which we are living." In overall fine condition. From the collection of Warren Arthur 'Chip' Logan.
