[On letterhead of the Chancery Office 230 Dwyer Avenue; San Antonio Texas]

July 8, 1944
Mr, Alonso S. Perales
714 Gunter Building
San Antonio 5, Texas

Dear Mr. Perales:

Thank you for the letter and the correspondence relative to the building of a proposed church in Raymondville, Texas. Although I am Archbishop of this Province I do not have jurisdiction over my Suffragan Bishops in the matter of church building. The jurisdiction of an Archbishop is more in the nature of honor and prestige than as having anything to do with the ordinary administration of a diocese. Bishop Ledvina has full jurisdiction in the matter.

Thanking you for sending me this correspondence and with best wishes, I remain

Very sincerely yours,
Robert E. Lucey [Handwritten - Signature]
Most Rev. Robert E. Lucey, D.D.
Archbishop of San Antonio
