Letter dated June 19, 1920 from Fred J. Traynor to Asst. Atty. General Albert E. Sheets informing him that Traynor has received a copy of the Supreme Court's decision on State v. Stepp and that he is not surprised by their decision and sees the trial as unfair and hopes for it to be reviewed as a new trial. He asks Sheets to talk to clerk of court J. H. Newton regarding whether it would be "considered proper" for Traynor to write to the members of the Supreme Court requesting that they remove the work "misconduct" from their characterization of the reasons for ordering a new trial.
