Clyde Reed, Secretary to the Governor, writes to Atchison attorney James Orr, in response to a letter in which Orr discusses the Court of Visitation and the Court of Industrial Relations. The Court of Visitation, which "would regulate and control everything and everybody..." was later considered unconstitutional by the Supreme Court and so Orr states that with the Court of Industrial Relations that in "preparation of this measure you call to your aid those on whose judgment you may rely as to the plan of the bill, as well as to its constitutionality when it becomes a law". Although legislation creating the Court of Industrial Relations was successfully passed in 1920, three years later it also was declared unconstitutional.

Creator: Reed, Clyde Martin, 1871-1949
