On January 8th subject called for mail at the General Delivery and was detained by Detective Sergeants Agee and Collins and brought to this office and I am attaching hereto statement, which was taken from her.
Later a telegram was sent to the Chief advising that the above subject is in custody here and is not naturalized, that she had in her possession radical literature and is a solicitor for the Liberator. . . . [JNK NOTE: The "not naturalized" reference is another indicator that Eve does not have to be treated to the rights of a US citizen, and can possibly be deported.]
During this period subject was kept under surveillance and while she was being detained at this office a thorough search was made of her room at the Pontiac Hotel and copies of the "Melting Pot," printed in St. Louis; "The St. Louis Labor" printed and published by the Socialist Party of St. Louis. "The Big Stick" printed in New York; "The Liberator" printed in New York.
