DRAFT

Dear Mr. President

Mr. Houston’s telegram is exactly in line with my own recommendations, which you approved, i.e., that Mr. Barnes and the present organization be continued.

My minor amendment is, that the Grain Corporation needs some simple legal reorganization to bring it oin line with the new act, and in these moatters we are preparing the necessary executive order to make the arrangements effective.

I am obliged for the copy of the complimentary telegram to you you received from the combined farmers associations of the Northwest.

I enclose daraft telegrams to Mr. Houston and to the Farmers Associations which I suggest would be in order for you to dispatch.

Faithfully yours,
Herbert C. Hoover
