Dear Mr. President

In order to meet necessary expenses for preparatory work pending legislation regarding food administration, I venture to ask that you be good enough to place at my disposal the sum of $10,000 or such part of this sum as may be necessary.

I presume that this amount would be taken from the fund of $100,000,000 placed in your hands for purposes of national defense under the provisions of the Deficiency Appropriation bill.

I am, dear Mr. President,

Very respectfully yours,
(Signed) Herbert Hoover
