Description

Content Warning: Materials in this collection contain harmful content, including racist and white supremacist language, graphic descriptions of lynching, and other forms of violence.
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 policemen 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.
