Mr. Hoover

Thank you for your letter of May 27th, with enclosure. I think such statement should be reserved until it seems necessary to give a reason. The President thinks you are entirely right in your statement, but agrees that it probably is not necessary to fire it off just now.

Sincerely yours,

JP Tumulty
Secretary to the President
