This is the first letter Jack Belden wrote to Henrietta Thompson. Responding to Thompson's letter proposing that they meet to discuss the Walkout, Belden describes himself as “sympathetic to but not overly excited or approving of your [Thompson’s] project.” Nevertheless, Belden writes that he will be at his address "most of the time," and that Thompson may visit him there. The letter is undated, Thompson notes that she received it on October 3, 1971.
