This letter, from Thomas Harten of New York to Kansas Governor Andrew Schoeppel, concerns the commemoration of Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation on the evening of February 10th, 1943, at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Reverend Harten explains to Governor Schoeppel that his support is needed in order for Americans to remember that in times of crisis or conflict "the black man has always been loyal."
