My dear Mr. Hoover

Mrs. Wilson has asked me to send you the inclosed letter and she wishes me to ask if you will be so good as to tell her if you know whether it would be advisable for her to endorse the use of this flour. The samples of bread and cake sent to her are very palatable but of course she knows nothing of its value for food.

May I ask you to be so kind as to return the correspondent’s letter in order that I may reply to her.

Very sincerely yours,

Edith Benham
Secretary
