(STATEHOUSE) - A suspicious package received at Governor Daniels' statehouse office Wednesday morning turns out to be a false alarm.

Nine governor's offices around the country, including the Alaska office of former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, have received envelopes this week containing white powder. All the letters have borne a Dallas postmark.

After the first wave of seven letters on Monday, authorities were on alert to look for the telltale postmark and intercepted letters at the offices of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Maine Gov. John Baldacci.

FBI Indianapolis Spokeswoman Wendy Osborne says when authorities at the statehouse saw a Texas postmark, they immediately called the FBI to confiscate the letter. But Osborne says there was no powder and no threat inside, and the bureau does not consider it related to the others. The statehouse was not evacuated.

The FBI's Dallas office is leading the investigation.
