Interview with Herbert Brownell, Jr.
QUESTION 27
INTERVIEWER:

DID YOU, DID YOU ASK—THERE'S SOME QUESTION ABOUT THIS—DID YOU ASK MAYOR MANN TO, TO WRITE TO YOU OR DID, OR WAS THAT SPONTANEOUS?

Herbert Brownell, Jr.:

That was spontaneous. I didn't even know his name when we received the telegram uh from him. I think the telegram went to the President and was referred uh, to the Attorney General and I uh think I heard uh his name and recognized it only uh at that time. I had had no communication uh with him before then uh I imagine that the FBI uh and the local uh US Attorney's office had dealt with him
