Interview with Gov. John Patterson
QUESTION 24
INTERVIEWER:

DESCRIBE THAT FOR ME HOW DO YOU MEAN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WAS ENCOURAGING THE WHOLE THING.

Gov. John Patterson:

Well, they were insisting of course, that these people be permitted to go anywhere they wanted to and do anything they wanted to do without being bothered, and they were insisting, Robert was insisting on a guarantee from us that none of them would be bothered or none of them would be injured. And of course you couldn't give a guarantee like that for people who are not going to do what you say, are not going to obey the police, who are out looking for difficulty and trouble.**
