Dear Mr. President:

I have been apprised of the fact that a number of my constituents are presently visiting the State of Mississippi. In view of the disturbing reports of lawlessness I urge you to take any proper and Constitutional steps and procedures available to your office to protect the lives and property of American citizens presently and lawfully visiting that state.

Sincerely,

James R. Grover, Jr.
Member of Congress
