File No. 812.113/4151

The Governor of Texas to the Secretary of State

Dear Mr. Lansing: I am in receipt of your favor of April 28.

I note what you say about the efforts of Government officials being defeated by individuals purchasing arms and ammunition and carrying them across the international line in some obscure locality. I have referred this matter to our ranger service, and will use every endeavor to prevent unlawful action along the lines indicated.

Thanking you for calling the matter to my attention, and with much personal esteem, I am,

Yours truly,

Jas. E. Ferguson
