This letter is from Frederick Smith, a Tennessee resident living in Munford,Tennessee. Smith indicates that he opposes integration and believes the true feelings of Tennesseans are for continued segregation and Clement's actions regarding Clinton were for political gain. Smith believes that Tennesseans should be allowed to resist the racial changes occurring. Smith writes Clement: "you should realize that this integration problem is being forced upon the entire South, including Tennessee, and the only way the Southerners can fight back is through demonstrations and a mild form of firm resistance. While he does think order is important, Smith also believes in the will of the people being the majority rule.
