My dear Mr. Hoover

May I not call your attention to this important point:

There is pressing need of the full cooperation of the packing trade, of every officer and employee, in the work of hurrying provisions abroad. Let the packers understand that they are engaged in a war service in which they must take orders and act together under the direction of the Food Administration if the Food Administration requires.

Cordially and sincerely yours,

WOODROW WILSON
