Transcript Office of the President General HEADQUARTERS ©f tfjr dengue of Uniteb ^tnlin-^mcricau (Ktizens "Mil for One and One for Mil" Brownsville, Texas. April 6th, 1933. Mr. Alonso S. Perales, 1235 Alamo National Bldg., San Antonio, Texas. My dear Ffiend:- I have just returned from a trip to Rio Grande City and Edinburg and found your letter of April 5th which I have read with a great deal of interest and I am inclined to believe that you have the situation pretty well analyzed and in hand. I also received a letter from my nephew Dr. H. N. Ginzales speaking very highly of Mr. P. G. Gonzalez which letter was written the same day and I am carefully scrutinizing both letters to see if there is any collusion between the two. Referring to the president of the new council organized by you in San Antonio he says: "Our president, P. G. (as he is known to every one here,^ is perhaps one of the pillars of the future of the institution, and you will agree with me in time that he is the man to carry on where you will l^ave; * * * * he is a modest, intelligent, has nice personality, /oung and above all oommands the respect of not only his race but of the Anglo Saxon element, for he is sincere.11 I have read in Ancient History that Diogenes was hunting for an honest man with the aid of a lantern and if Dr. Gonzalez is not acting in collusion with you he must have found the very man that Diogenes wanted and I am going to make a special effort to go to San Antonio and get acquainted with this young man so that in case that I shall die and meet old Diogenes across the River Styx
