Unfulfilled Promises

All the time these letters with his offers were being sent to us Mr. Norris was going forward with the publication of the book. He was writing the letters to hold us off and prevent court action until he could bring his book from the press. It is the same kind of deception and treachery that the Japanese envoys pulled on Secretary Hull in their pretended peace conferences while their forces were on the way to bomb Pearl Harbor.

The above letter is printed on page 5 of the Norris book and below it is also printed the statement: "The above proposition was declined." But the answers to his letter show that his statement is again absolutely false.

The above letter was received from Mr. Norris, after arrangements had been made between him and my attorney to go to the office of my attorney on a certain date, to receive and review the transcripts. I had postponed my West Virginia meetings, had gone to Weatherford, Texas, for that purpose, we had called Norris on the phone and he would not talk, we wrote him a registered letter which was received and receipted by his secretary, advising them that I was there by agreement and waiting - then we received this letter! It shows that Norris never had any intention, at any time, to carry out his "offers." He made them to print in his book, which was already being printed - and he states in his book that these offers were declined! But the correspondence shows definitely that they were accepted, and they prove that J. Frank Norris did not "abide agreement" in his letters to attorney Queen, nor his agreement with Judge Atwell, nor any agreement that he made. He is in fact the arch-covenant breaker of all time. Every time he made the statement, "this offer was declined," he printed a deliberate falsehood.
