Text

Mr. President

I am obliged for your favor of October 10th.We, of course, have taken the necessary steps to comply with your wish as to deferring the final week of our Food Conservation Pledge Campaign until the week of October 28th to November 4th. You will, of course, realize that we may be unable to reach some of the more remote districts.

I have no doubt that the five hundred thousand workers who have enlisted to this service will loyally respond to your request for a greater and longer continued exertion. Your emphasis on the national importance of the Conservation Campaign should stimulate our large body of devoted workers to the utmost effort during the new week.

I am
Your obedient servant,
(Signed) HERBERT HOOVER.
