FLORIDA'S MOST CO MPLETE NE WS PAPER
200 South Miami Ave.
Miami 30, Florida July 9, 1958.



Mr Doug Silver
Fort Pierce, Florida

Dear Doug:

Zora Hurston's approach to the migrant labor camp situa-
tion, doesn't quite Jell.

I had several editors read the first installment, and
they couldn't quite figure what the purpose of the story was.

The conversations and activities of the people are prob-
ably unlike those of any Negro community and the question arises as
to whether she is trying to prove that conditions are bad in these
camps, or whether they are better than many believe.

I well remember James Lyons' story about Miss Hurston
that appeared in The Herald several, years ago. I have always had
great: admiration for Miss Hurston. She evidently needs a ghost
writer, however.

I presume that's what she had for articles she wrote for
national magazines.

If we can establish some purpose for such a series, and
then write it accordingly, we'd be glad to take a look.

However, this seems to me more of a one-shot deal than ar
series.

Steve Trurmbull is warming up his motors for a trip down
the Suwanee River;. He will probably be checking in with you en
route.

Since ly,







end .
