Fred Robertson of the United State Attorney's Office, Kansas City (Wyandotte County), writes Charles H. Sessions, secretary to Governor Arthur Capper, of Topeka (Shawnee County). The letter acknowledges receipt of a letter from W. A. Lewis of Pence (Scott County) who is alarmed by the behavior of a German neighbor. During WWI, citizens suspicious of the patriotic allegiances of their neighbors often sent reports of such suspicions to the Governor. The Governor's Office often forwarded these reports to the United States District Attorney for investigation.
