Description: Letter from Jose O. Garza, District Governor, District Number 13 to John J. Herrera dated November 2, 1956. Garza expresses to Herrera his distaste of combining the name of LULAC with politics. Garza explains to Herrera that some "printed leaflets" that were sent out with "yours and Mr. Felix Tijerinas's point of views" did the opposite of what LULAC represented, which was create a separation from the Anglo community instead of an integration and equality. "This is the frequent and calculated way that you use the word "LATINOS" [...] This classification that you give our people only serves to weaker the bonds we seek to tie with our anglo conpatriots." Garza goes on to say, "Inasmuch as we encourage our members to partake of politics as individuals, we will not partake of any politics as an organization."

[Letter from William Chappell to J. D. Giddings - November 2, 1872]

Description: Letter from William Chappell to J. D. Giddings. Chappell begins by stating that he has seen a copy of the order that the Soule University Board of Trustees gave to the Building Committee to hypothecate all of the estate real and personal in order to secure a loan to build a "stone edifice." However, the committee failed to include the Rock Building and donated lands in the hypothecation, and this failure is not the fault of the Board of Trustees because it was explicit in its instructions to include all estate real and personal. Discussing a different matter, he explains how William Keesee with a black man purchased D. Ayrs' land, which had been given to him by his father in Alabama in 1837 or 1838. The deed to Mr. Ayrs' land was not made until after Keesee's death. Ayrs knew that the land had been donated, but Chappell does not know whether he deeded it to the university or his heirs.
