Description

This document is a letter that was written on behalf of The Mattachine Society of Washington DC as a whole, by Frank Kameny, describing the purpose of the organization and outlining its goals. He is requesting that the government change its policies on their treatment of LGBT people, and asks for Paul Jones (who was the speaker of the House at the time) to meet with them personally to discuss the matter further.
On the bottom of the letter, you can see that Jones sent the letter back with a response saying, "Please do not contaminate my mail with such filthy trash."
