Gentlemen:

Kindly let us have a reply t our letter of September 24, 1946, regarding the segregation of the Latin American children from the Anglo-American children up to and including the sixth grade in the public schools of your District. If we do not hear from you by Monday, October 14th, 1946, we shall assume that you are not willing to grant to the protesting patrons of your School District the relief which they seek, and we shall immediately take the matter up with the State Superintendent of Public Instruction of Austin, Texas.
