Title

23 November 1973: Mailgram from Lucy Kerns, Alexandria, Va., to Senator Sam Ervin.

Description

Ms. Kerns writes to Sen. Ervin as a supporter of the death penalty with a relative who has been raped and murdered. She argues that if young people in North Carolina "do not see justice done...could you blame them for looking toward Communism or anything else for leadership?" She appeals to Ervin as "the lifelong 'Master Defender' of the Constitution."
