Dear Sir: At a meeting of the Business Men's Club expressly convened for the purpose, it was decided unanimously that a cordial vote of thanks be tendered you for the interest that you have taken in Brownsville in defending its fair fame against the aspersions of the negro miscreant soldiers who recently shot up our town and in disapproval of the ill advis ed action of sympathisers of these murderers in the north and east Your able letter to the Secretary of War is heartily commended, and your vindication of Browns ville deserves our heart-felt thanks It is melancholy to think that upon vague and doubtful testimo ny people in the north and west who claim to represent public sentiment should, under such con ditions, either justify the action of the murderous negroes or sym pathise with them in any way. Your comprehensive letter which brings out the facts clearly and without bias, will do much toward dispelling this wrong impression, and it is dimcuit to teel that any one, whatever his feelings may have been heretofore, can come to any other conclusion after perus ing your letter, than that President Roosevelt is right in his decision. Again thanking you for "your splendid vindication of the citizens of Brownsville, we have the honor to remain. Yours very truly, Brownsville Business Men's Club. By P. E. Blalack, President P. S.
