The Time the KKK Politely Asked for a 'Klan Day' in Cincinnati

From SABR member Peter Nash at Deadspin.com on April 21:

These four letters procured by Deadspin's house MLB archivist, Pete Nash, show that the Ku Klux Klan wrote polite letters and were extremely generous about their flower boquets. At least that was the case in 1924.
