Title Letter from Heriot Clarkson to Francis O. Clarkson
Date November 23, 1939
Description In this letter Judge Clarkson urges Francis to contact Jonathan Daniels, editor of the News and Observer, to see why a letter had not yet been printed in the paper. An edited copy of the letter shows it was a response to an article in the News and Observer on Nov. 15, 1939 titled "State Parkway Spending". Judge Clarkson reiterates his desire to "keep the records straight" and protect his family's name by having the Clarkson story told in the papers.
