New York 10, NY
My dear Dr. Du Bois,
Yours letter of the 9th ultimo is to hand and I hereby acknowledge it with thanks. I am very grateful to you for the offer you have made to co-operate in bringing about the proposed conference. I also thank you for the suggestions you made in connection therewith.
We are quite aware of the numerous difficulties we shall be faced with; but we feel quite confident that this being the feeling of the people of Africa, a way out will be found. Though we would have preferred a conference in the continent of Africa, conference shall have to be held somewhere else if possible.
I also enclose herein a copy of our letter to various national organisations and Governments in this continent and also to the list of addresses as suggested by you. I have also written to Mr. George Padmore in terms of your letter.
Yours in the cause form Freedom
(sd) W.M. Sisulu
