Text

1-H-S

Dear Mr. President:

I have received the two attached cables from our representatives in Europe. The one on the subject of international control of distribution of food, raw materials and ships does seem to me to require urgent consideration. In the meantime I have directed Mr. Cotton, my representative, that he should in no form take any part in pledges that would even appear to commit our government.

Yours faithfully,

Herbert Hoover

His Excellency
The President of
the United States,
the White House.
