Dear Mr. Tumulty

I am returning, herewith, the letter which you were good enough to send us from Miss DeNartick, who as you will note, gives no address or does she even take the trouble to sign her communication.

I have investigated the complaint she makes and can find no ground for her statement. Naturally, in creating an entirely new Department to cover work which has never been done before, we have had a pretty strenuous time and the spirit of our employees has been splendid.

However, we fully recognize that the facilities offered in attempting to convert a Hotel into an Office Building are not what anyone would accept from choice. We expect to be in our new building by December 1st, and we are taking steps to provide for the welfare of all of our employees.

If Miss DeNartick had given her address I would have been very pleased to have replied to her direct.

Faithfully yours,
[Hoover]
