Suite 714 Gunter Bldg.
San Antonio, Texas

February 28, 1941

Honorable Tom Connally, [To]
United States Senator,
The Capitol,
Washington, D.C.

Dear Senator Connally:

We will appreciate it very much if you will support Senate Bill 195 for the Prevention and Control of Tuberculosis. For years we have been assisting in combatting this plague, and it goes without saying that we would feel very happy if said Bill were brought to a hearing at once and passed without delay. It is positively one of the greatest things you could do to help us solve the problem. There is much work to be done in Bexar County, as well as other Texas Counties, in the fight against tuberculosis, and there is no money with which to do it.

Thanking you in advance, we remain

Sincerely yours,
THE LEAGUE OF LOYAL AMERICANS
By Alonso S. Perales
Director General

[Dashes across paper]

Dear Senator Connally:

Please ask Mr. Nelson A. Rockefeller, Coordinator of Commercial and Cultural Relations among the American Republics, whether he intends to send us a corps of lecturers and writers to conduct a vigorous, yet diplomatic and tactful campaign, among our Anglo-American friends and fellow-citizens in Texas, designed to create a more sympathetic understanding and fellowship among us here. We believe Texas is the logical place to really get the two great Races of the Western Hemisphere together, and then cite the situation in Texas as an example to the rest of the American world.

Perales.
