Personal

My dear Mr. Strauss:

Answering your letter of March 21st, I beg to say that in a number of instances papers sent by the President to the several departments for advice as to how he should reply have been retained by the departments, making it necessary for us to write or telephone for their return so that they might be considered by the President in the light of the department’s suggestions. I communicated similarly with all of the departments and thought it better to write than to telephone the request.

Sincerely yours,

J.P. Tumulty
Secretary to the President
