Dear Mr~s. Holland,

My friend, Marjory Silver came yesterday to tell me she had seen yea

at the H~omecoming at. Gainesville, and I wa~s very happY.

I did not try to-publish anything concerning the Senator before no

during the campaign, for I soon learned that Pepper wanted to pin the

label og Nigger-lover on the Senator, and so I wouid. alfx~~rinstead
of helping as I Eo much wanted to. but I did speak before small

groups of KwrToes reminding them that Senator K olland was the

father of Negro education in Florida,and that it is always pref rabbi

to see a promise any day than to hear about one, and that Pepper hai
not\, ing to show but words and weasley words at that.I could. point

to his quick switch in the Smathers campaign, showing his lack of 1

cerity, Naturally I whas delight~ed at the over-helming victory.

But as Mrcs. Silver can tell vou, I had gathered some stuff to kn(B

him cold at the last minute, his re eiving inter-racial couples
socially in New YCRK, ans was headed for your local headquarters
to turn it in when she stoy-ed me, saying that it was unnecessary

All1 my best, love to you and yours,






Zora Neale Hurston
