Text

Dear Mr. President

I hesitate to ask you to read even one of the multitude of speeches delivered by your hosts of talking assistants.

I am however sending one of mine in hopes you can find the time for its perusal because it is tantamount to a report on our doings in wheat and second something has happened on the spiritual side of our people when it is possible to address the Chicago Board of Trade Members with Frank Norris as the text and have it received with cheers—

Sincerely

H
