    This short letter from Edward Connelly, United States Attorney, to Major Harvey Eaton demonstrates the tension between government officials regarding the case of Gordon Hirabayashi. Connelly acknowledges the directions he's been issued from Eaton. He continues, "I wish to advice you that the matters concerning the delinquency of this Japanese will be submitted to our next regular session of the Grand Jury.

I do not particularly welcome any cast-off cases from any other jurisdiction.". less
