1929-06-26 Correspondence Between The Syrian-Lebanon-American Association and Florida Governor Carlton Regarding the Romey Murders

Description

A letter from Elies Moses, Roy Allem and Peter Deeb officers of The Syrian-Lebanon-American Association to Florida Governor Carlton, regarding the murders of Nola and Hasna Romey. The Association urges the governor to order an investigation into events and hopes that "if the preponderance of testimony shows as we believe, that the policement involved were to blame, we hope you will immediately suspend them pending the outcome of their trial." The reply from Governor Carlton's secretary states that the governor has no authority to suspend the policemen involved as they are under the Sheriff (Douglass) of the county.
