Holmes: Your letter addressed to Mr, Villard has "been referred to this office for reply, fa are glad to Imow that you are so interested in the 17.A.A.C.P and that you are carrying its propaganda into the far West. In regard to organizing a "branch in Denver, we are sending you under separate cover a copy of the form of constitution which we use for branches, also a copy of that used for locals; and we enclose detailed instructions. We have practically decided not to charter any more branches in the immediate future but to organize groups as locals with the understanding that if they are successful, at the end of a year they will be chartered as branches. Meantime we are sending our speakers, field agent and officers all over the country to visit the branches we have organized with the idea of infusing new life in them. We prefer to have fewer branches and have all large number more or less inactive. these active rather than a $e therefore suggest that you work in Denver with the idea of organizing a group first into a local. With assurances of our appreciation of your interest, Very truly yours, kcij/rr 3no.
