L. Pruett, Clute, Texas. In full: "Dear Mr. Pruett: Many thanks for your kind and sincere letter of last week. I am herein enclosing a copy of the Texas Constitution [not included], together with a copy of the publication entitled 'The First Families of Texas.' [not included] I can appreciate the demands of your position, being a counselor of special education, and having the difficult, yet self-satisfying, task of working with those of our youth who are without choice physically and sometimes mentally handicapped. Please, never lose faith in your most difficult task. I extend to you my very best wishes for a fruitful and self satisfying 1973. Sincerely, John L . Hill JLH:ae Enclosures (2)". Hill (1923-2007, born in Breckenridge, Texas) was a Texan Democratic politician and the only person in Texas state history to serve as state Secretary of State (1966-1968), state Attorney General (1972-1979) and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Texas (1984-1988). Among his more memorable cases as Attorney General was closing the Chicken Ranch whorehouse, an illegal brothel in Fayette County, Texas that remained open for over 70 years and that was tolerated by local officials. This case became the basis for the Broadway hit musical (1978-1982) and movie (1982) The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Hill was a practicing trial lawyer for 60 years, from his graduation at the law school at the University of Texas in 1947 until his death. Lightly toned and creased. Light tear in right edge. Blue ink mark near right edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
