Could you check your records for the fall of 1963 and see if you have any arrest record for a John Hurt whose residence is normally Raleigh, North Carolina. If so, could you supply me with the details of the disposition of his case. Also, could you check and see if, at the same time, there was also in jail either Mexican or Mexican-American named Gonzalez; unfortunately, I have no further identification of him.
Bernard Fensterwald, Jr.
Editor's note: The following is the reply, handwritten on the original letter, which was returned to Fensterwald.
We have made a thorough check on the above mentioned subjects and have found no record on either.
