The Secretary of State to the Governor of California (Warren)

I refer to my telegram of April 28 regarding a bill which was then understood to be before the California Legislature regarding the cultivation of land by aliens ineligible to citizenship and about the possible effect of which on British Indians residing in California the Agent General for India had expressed apprehension. You kindly telegraphed me on the same date that the subject would receive your careful attention.

As issues of national concern are involved I should greatly appreciate such information regarding developments in connection with the proposed legislation as you may be able to send me at this time.

Cordell Hull
