Dear Mr. President

Would you advise me whether you think Mr. Carter Harrison, of Chicago, would be a man of balanced mind and equanimity to handle such situations as Dr. Garfield has gone through with during the past week?

I especially want to suggest to you a commitee to consider the whole question of conservation in connection with brewing, as to whether we should interfere with the brewing trade in any fashion, and I want some gentleman of prime importance and open fairness of mind to assist in assembling such a committee and to act under direction from you, if it pleases you to inaugurate such a measure.

Yours faithfully,
[Hoover
