The writer shares a card declining an invitation given to African Americans in Placerville to march in the July 4th parade. The card was signed by "Colored Citizens," and details the reasons for this action. He emphasizes that this was unnecessary since those whose racial prejudice had motivated this step were not worthy of this much regard.
