Description
Biddle's response to Smith's letter to Harry Truman requesting that J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI become involved in stopping the arson and shootings perpetrated against Japanese Americans (see Letter from Frank Herron Smith to President Harry S. Truman, May 4, 1945) informs Smith that unless a federal law is violated, he can not be involved. Biddle states that he has asked Hoover to give him a report on the "outrages" and requests that Smith send any other details he has so that Biddle can notify Governor Earl Warren about them.
