Dear Sir:

I am proud of your "Green Book" and consider it a great little motorist guide. After receiving a copy I only wished that I had one with me on a recent trip I made, as I am sure that it would have made the entire vacation perfect.

The Green Book not only serves the Negro motorist and tourist well, but does a splendid job for its advertisers.
    
With all good wishes, I am,

Very sincerely yours,

William H. Denkins, Jr.

INTRODUCTION

The idea of  "The Green Book" is to give the Motorist and Tourist a Guide not only of the Hotels and Tourist Homes in all of the large cities, but other classifications that will be found useful wherever he may be.  Also facts and  information that the Negro Motorist can use and depend upon.
There are thousands of places that the public doesn't know about and aren't listed. Perhaps you know of some? If so send in their names and addresses and the kind of business, so that we might pass it along to the rest of your fellow Motorists.
You will find it handy on your travels, whether at home or in some other state, and is up to date. Each year we are compiling new lists as some of these places move, or go out of business and new business places are started giving added employment to members of our race.
When you are traveling mention "The Green Book" so as to let these people know just how you found out about their place of business. If they haven't heard about This Guide, tell them to get in touch with us.
If this Guide is useful, let us know, if not tell us also, as we appreciate your criticisms.
If any errors are found, kindly notify the publishers so that they can be corrected in the next issue.
