1957 Valentine From Martin Luther King to Coretta King

From February 1957:

“My Darling,

It is a pleasure for me to pause while attending to important business which affects the welfare of this nation and attend to the most important business in the world, namely choosing as my Valentine the sweetest and most lovely wife and mother in all the world, as the days go by my love grows ever greater, for you will always be my Valentine.

Martin.”
