Title Letter from Heriot Clarkson to Francis O. Clarkson
Date October 21, 1938
Description Says that Francis's article "Clarkson Explains" is "all right", but informs him that a telegram was sent to Julian Miller asking for an apology to be printed for the "Parkway Suit Dismissed" article. Judge Clarkson says that his tactic is justified as he is tired of being brow-beaten by the newspapers.
Commentary The Charlotte Observer did later print a correction to the headline in "Parkway Suit Dismissed." Box 10, folder 539.
