public mass meeting asembled in
the city of Laredo, Monday, De
cember 30, 1929, most respectfully
represent to you that there is a
condition now existing in Laredo
that is bringing great financial loss
and distress to the people of this
community.

certain acts of our district attorney,
Hon. John A. Vails, and while we
deplore the public statements of the
consul general of Mexico requesting
his resignation and believe that it is
an unwarranted interference in the
affairs of this state, we believe that
the only immediate solution or set
tlement of this question is that Mr.
Vails resign his office or that he
be removed and that we, the under
signed citizens of Laredo, and Webb
county, Texas, most respectfully
petition you to request Mr. Vails
resignation and in the event it la
not tendered you remove him from
