"My husband is in the habit of buying a quart of wiskey [sic] every other day from a Chinese bootlegger…We need this money for household expenses.  Will you please have his place raided? He keeps a supply planted in the garden and a smaller quantity under the back steps for quick delivery."
Letter from Mrs. Hillyer concerning her husband’s drinking activities., 09/22/1931

This letter from Mrs. Hillyer pertains to the Seattle Conspiracy case, in which the Bureau of Prohibition investigated a conspiracy by members of the Seattle Police department and other government officials in the city to obtain protection money from those violating the National Prohibition Act. Members also sold confiscated liquor for profit. Included in the conspiracy was Frank Olmstead, a captain on the police force. His conviction was appealed to the Supreme Court on the grounds that the wire taps used to convict him were unconstitutional. In a dissenting opinion, Justice Brandeis agreed stating that officials should be required to get a search warrant before placing a wiretap on a telephone line.
