About This Item

1908. Very Good. One page (135 words) on a single letter-sized sheet (21.5cm. x 28cm.). No letterhead (sent from New York City). Blue type. Minor soil. Old fold marks. Minor corner chip. Phillips was Secretary of the Pennsylvania State Educational Commission. BTW is responding to a letter which apparently asked for his views on the matter of separate race schools in Pennsylvania. BTW declines to "give advice in a matter covering local conditions." Instead he suggests that prominent Pennsylvania African Americans be consulted and suggests the names of four such individuals (all of whom were editors of African American journals or newspapers). Also included is the carbon copy of a short letter from Phillips thanking BTW for his letter.
