[Ackn. ?] MES146 106th Street and 1st Ave. New York April 5, 1968 Dear Mrs. Martin Luther King, I know how bad you feel about how your husband died. We all felt bad to. Your husband I heard was very brave bcause he wanted to stop the war. Well at least he had courage and a very good man. I wish my father was the same as your husband. I liked the speech he made because it made me cry. The next day we went to assembly so we could hear all about him. Also I heard he was one of ten other negros selceted for outstanding personailites of the world in 1956. I was happy when I heard that he won the Nobel Peace Prize. One day he knew that there were many sick people and one day they would kill him. I will remember there words he said. " It's not how long you live but how you live. That is all I have to say. Sincerely yours, Brenda [Sipulveda?]
