Samuel Gompers Papers

To John O'Connell

                                                                                                                          May 9, 1917

James [sic] O'Connell,
Labor Temple, San Francisco, Cal.

          Have had most interesting conference with Attorney-general regarding the newly discovered evidence in Mooney case. While the Department of Justice can not take up the matter I am to have conference with other representatives of the government and hope that new and fair trial may be accorded Mooney.
