LETTER FROM SIMS TO DUBOIS , JULY 13 , 1918 ( ON BLUEFIELD COLORED INSTITUTE STATIONERY )
1918 “ Dear Dr . DuBois ,
When here in May we talked of finding some way of bringing colored talent before appreciative audiences in all parts of the country . I shall be able to use as many as five good entertainments during the next year . What has your office to offer ?
When does the economic conference about which you spoke , meet at Cheyney I shall want to attend ?
Very Truly , R . P . Sims ” jan
