[Letter from Dallas Scarborough to Truett Latimer, February 14, 1957]

Description: Letter from Dallas Scarborough to Truett Latimer discussing Latimer's resolution concerning the Texas constitution.

He writes that the U.S. constitution would be a good model and that there is not much in the Texas constitution that is objectionable, although he mentions changing the homestead law.
