Letter from Harold Brown in response to the letter sent to Dr. Fetter at the San Diego Zoo and thanking him for helping to secure a meeting that the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) has been trying to have for the previous six months. He also informs Mr. Thompson that if the meeting does not work, then "CORE has no remaining alternatives but to take the case to the people . . . and to dramatize the issue by direct action."
