have nothing to sell, our fellowship has no dues, officers or
paid directors. Our interest in fellow alcoholics is purely from
a humanitarian standpoint, with no mercenary motives whatsoever.
Many people have hobbies of collecting stamps, coins and various
objects of interest to them. Our hobby happens to be the rehabilitation
of hopeless alcoholics.

and church group meetings."
is an outline of our program --
prospective member is introduced to our fellowship. His qualifications
are considered and if he qualifies, his sponsor then gains his
confidence by relating experiences of his own drinking days as
evidence that he has been there as well so to speak and is qualified
as an expert in alcoholism through his own particular experience.
The sponsor is a member of a group, who takes the responsibility
of teaching and guiding the new member. His duties are many
and varied and very important. It is he to whom
the new member looks first for all his immediate needs.

And Mrs. Chas. H. Snyder
Lupton informed me how very active you are in "Alcoholics Anonymous,"
and you were so kind as to put a very appropriate worker in touch
with one of my friends who was in need of acquaintance with "Alcoholics
Anonymous" almost a year ago. So again I come to you.
this case it is at the request of a sweet voiced woman, whose
husband is my own husband's legal client. I believe Mr. King is
a mail carrier. Mrs. King has told me he is a negro and also spanish
descent, with above the average in desirable boyhood environment.
They have been a long time married, have no children, and it would
seem that both husband and wife would never cease to be grateful
if "Alcoholics Anonymous" could meet their need. It is probable
Mrs. King, as in most cases, would rather her husband did not
know that she is the one who has tried to instigate the work to
be done. I do hope also that you have one or more high type colored
workers. The Kings are listed in the phone book LO 1507, address
3346 East 134th Street. Thank you for anything at all that you
can do for them.
