Dear Mr. President

With regard to a telegram sent to you by the Bartlett Frazier Company, of Chicago, on the question of wheat prices, I would like to suggest that no reply should be made at all.

The Bartlett Frazier Company are one of the most difficult speculative concerns with which I have to deal and I am not disposed to rely upon their views in anything.

Faithfully yours,
[Herbert Hoover]
