"The pamphlet is most interesting in the picture it gives of the lack of food and sufficient clothing for the troops and the sufferings and deaths of the wounded due to lack of medicines" - Streeter.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
