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

My Dear Governor Warren: I have received your letter of July 8, 1943, in which you inform me that your signature has been affixed to Senate Bill No. 140, and in which you discuss certain aspects of the bill.

I am grateful to you for the explanation of the basis and purpose of this bill, as set forth in your several communications on the subject. The Department will convey to those persons who have communicated on the matter with it, the substance of your remarks. Your portrayal of the subject will, I am confident, be most helpful in alleviating such bitterness and resentment as may exist regarding the bill’s passage.

With my appreciation of your expression of good wishes, I am

Sincerely yours,

Cordell Hull
