Mrs. S. M. Wilson
Lexington
Kentucky
My dear Mrs. Wilson:

In cooperation with state leaders, I plan to hold a Regional
Conference in Covington, Kentucky, for Democratic women of Indiana, Ken-
tucky, Ohio and Tennessee, on Friday, June 6th.

We are inviting to this Regional Conference the Committee-
women, State Vice Chairmen and Congressional Committeewomen of the four
states, and also the women members of the State Committees, County Vice
Chairmen, and officers of Democratic Women's Clubs. .

You will understand the necessity of having enthusiastic co-
operation from the state leaders in each of the states included in the
Conference if the occasion is to be a success and to assure the psychoe
logical effect we want. I know that you will employ every effort to
that end, and especially am I anxious to know that you will attend.

While the business sessions of the Conference are scheduled
for the 6th, a reception is tendered to those attending the conference
and to delegates to the Kentucky State Convention of Democratic Women's
Clubs, meeting also in Covington, on the evening of the 5th at Summit
Hills Country Club. A large mass meeting will close the Regional Con—
ference on the evening of June 6th.

Enclosed with this letter you will find a statement of other
details, including tentative program and information concerning hotel
accommodations, transportation facilities, etc.

I am looking forward with a great deal of pleasure to seeing
you and conferring with you, and would be glad if you would let me know
whether your presence can be counted upon.

Yours most sincerely, ”
