Public Opinion.

Through the Courtesy of Senator France

President sends letter to Senator J. I. France upon receiving the Baltimore
Colored Directory:

"The President has received your letter of November 29th, as well
as its enclosure from Mr. Robert W. Coleman, and he asks if you will
not be good enough to convey to Mr. Coleman an expression of apprecia-
tion of the courtesy which Mr. Coleman has been good enough to extend
to him."

Mr. Robert W. Coleman,

Baltimore, Md.
Dear Sir:

Please accept my appreciation and thanks for your publication of the First
Colored Directory of Baltimore City. In the course of the year I have occasion
to refer to a number of business men, school teachers and others, and I find your
directory an unfailing and reliable source of information. Your enterprise is
an asset to the community. I wish you continued success.
Very truly yours,

Principal Colored High School.

Dear Mr. Coleman:

I write to say that the National Business League is always pleased to make
note of such enterprises as you are fostering. I hope that your Business Directory
of Baltimore may receive the cordial support of the business and professional
classes. The circulation of your booklet should prove incalculably helpful in
advancing race pride, and at the same time bring about that encouragement of
negro business so devoutly to be welcomed.

Yours very sincerely,

Secretary National Negro Business League, Tuskegee, Ala.

My Dear Sir:

Enclosed find herewith copy for the outside back cover page of your forth-
coming Directory for Colored People of Baltimore City.

I am pleased to co-operate in this matter, for I believe the publication of a
first-class directory will be of great value to all parties concerned. I am also
pleased to co-operate in this because you are making a brave fight against great
odds, and I wish to see you succeed. With best wishes,

Yours very truly,

President of Morgan College.

Mr. Robert W. Coleman,

418 E. Federal St., Baltimore, Md.
My Dear Mr. Coleman:

I think you have done a very excellent piece of work in getting out a colored
directory of the City of Baltimore.

It will serve a great many purposes for the public of this, and of the other
cities included in your work.

With best wishes for success, I remain,

Yours sincerely,

Archbishop of Baltimore.

Baltimore, Md., June 4, 1923.
My Dear Mr. Coleman:

It gives me pleasure to inform you that thru my advertisement in your
directory a relative of mine who lives in New Haven, Connecticut, and whom I
have not seen for eight years, was able to locate me, for which I am more than

Very truly yours,


Violin Instructor.
