Text

Mr. President

I hate to trouble you with anything but critical matters, but I take the liberty of sending you a letter from Julius H. Barnes, who is the head of our Grain Corporation and who has demonstrated himself not only one of the most patriotic but one of the most intelligent of Americans in the execution of his very difficult and enormous task.

I beg to remain
Your obedient servant,
[Herbert Hoover]
