October 18, 1946
Honorable L.A. Woods,
State Superintendent of Public Instruction,
The Capitol
Austin, Texas.

Dear Dr. Woods:

As Attorney for a group of citizens and taxpayers of Pleasanton, Atascosa County, Texas, I take pleasure in enclosing herewith a copy of the petition presented to the Pleasanton Board of Education, Pleasanton Independent School District. It speaks for itself. You will also find attached hereto copies of two letters which I addressed to the said Board. To date neither said citizens and taxpayers nor the writer have heard from the Pleasanton Board of Education. Therefore, we assume that they are not willing to grant to said school patrons the relief which they seek.
We are to-day appealing to you, Sir, in the hope that you may be able to assist us to make a proper adjustment to this matter. May we hear from you?

Thanking you in advance, I remain
Yours very truly,
Alonso S. Perales.
