Aug. 20, 1957 Gov. Leader, Dear Sir, I think your handling of the Levittown situation is brutal, and does not show good judgement on the part of one who is suppose to be Governor of our state. If you had ever lived near those savages, then you would know why people object to their moving into Levittown. Pardon me for not signing my name for it has reached the point where people like I are not free to express our opinions, thanks to people like you. See you at the Polls.
