My hope is to lift the cloud that now rests upon a defenceless people, and save our
children from the infamy and shame that will forever stamp us as an inferior and
unworthy people. If this organization is effected, the sympathy of the country
aroused, the moral support of other nations drawn toward us, my people vindicated
in the enjoyment of their rights, mob and lynch law forever removed from the country,
I shall be satisfied. 1 appeal to the pride of all christian nations in this matter.
Yours for the good of the Race and Nation,

I most heartily endorse your views of a National organization and shall take
steps at once for the incorporation of the National Citizens' Rights Association with
that end in view. The association has heretofore been only voluntary and I think
nnv is the time to cement this large amount of sentiment so as to make it effective in
the assertion of right thioughout the country
