Dear Sir:

The Interracial Commission of Denver,Colo-
rado has authorized me to express to you their sentiment in
regard to the Scottsboro Case. We feel sure that your
sentiment is also thus stated: It is the desire of this
Commission that everything possible be done for the pro-
tection of the Negro boys and that justice be done
in handling the case. This statement is being sent because
it was felt that the expression of the sentiment would
be helpful to you and at the same time would enable us to
definitely take a stand against racial injustice.

Respectfully submitted,

T.R. Garth
For the Interracial Commission of
Denver, Colorado.
