900 - 19th Street, N.W.
Apartment 208,
Washington, D.C.,
November 4, 1926.

Mr. J.T. Canales,
Attorney-at-Law,
Brownsville, Texas.

Dear Friend:

Thank you very much for your interest-ing letter of October 9 the contents of which have been carefully noted.

Glad to note that you are rendering such great assistance inputting Rio Grande City on the map.

Yes, you are quite right when you say that the sooner I return to Texas and get started in the practice of law the better. I intend to do so as soon as possible. I may not be able to leave here before next June, and since I have nothing tangible in Texas in the way of law con-nection perhaps it is just as well. In the mean-time i shall try to save some money for the starvation period. I have not as yet lost hope of joinging forces with you some day for the purpose of "hitting the ball" along the Rio Grande Valley. Something tells me that we could make a huge success.

Have been reading in the local papers, and also in "La Prensa" and other Texas papers, about the shameful Raymondville incident. What prior justice? Whiter are we drifting? Such crimes as this [Illegible - make] our Magna Charta look like a mere scrap of paper.

Drop me a line when you have the time. I am always glad to hear from you.

Again thanking you for your welcome letter, and wishing you the best of luck in all things, I am

Sincerely yours,
