17 November 1953: W.A. Stanbury to Paul Green.
Following an editorial written by Paul Green, published in the Greensboro Daily News, Reverend W.A. Stanbury of Asheboro, N.C., writes to Green, "More than a quarter of a century ago, when serving as pastor of a church in Raleigh, I walked down the last mile with the Stewarts, father and son...If ever men deserved the ultimate in punishment, they did; but I came back from that experience with the firm conviction which has never been shaken, that capital punishment is an unspeakably primitive method of dealing with criminals..."
