Dear Mr. King:

Thank you for sending me your comments regarding the necessity of the decision I had to make in the difficult Arkansas situation. I appreciated your thoughtful expression of the basic and compelling factors involved.

I share your confidence that Americans everywhere remain devoted to our tradition of adherence to orderly processes of law.
