Mr. Valencia has called on me several times. I told him to go ahead and continue as Director of Publicity, but he says he cannot do so until you and the San Antonio gang reach a friendly settlement. They did not like that part of your article which says that the hydra tried to bite again - this time in Hebbronville. They say you are rubbing it into the San Antonio Council. Personally, I think it is just an excuse for not cooperating with you, the real reason being that they lost the presidency.

If you definitely decide to hold the Special Convention in San Antonio on the 22nd instant, please telegraph me on receipt of this if you have not already written me about it.

With warmest personal regards and best wishes, I remain

Sincerely your friend,
