THE WHITE HOUSE
Washington

My dear Mr. Hoover

I would be very much obliged to you if I might have a memorandum from you as to any legislation which you think it imperative should be considered at this session of Congress.

I assume that the Congress will prefer to confine itself entirely to matters directly connected with the prosecution of the war, and in my judgment that is the policy which it should pursue. My request, therefore, concerns only such matters as you think should be provided for at once and cannot be postponed.

Cordially and sincerely yours,

WOODROW WILSON
