Dear Mr. President

In order to meet necessary expenses of preparatory work pending legislation regarding food administration I venture to ask that you be good enough to place at my disposal an additional sum of $20,000 from the appropriation of $100,000,000 for the National Security and Defense.

Very respectfully,
(Signed) Herbert Hoover.
