Text

My dear Mr. Hoover

I think that the reasons you give for your plan to go abroad and consult with the Food Administrators of France, England and Italy are entirely conclusive, and I believe that your visit to the other side will probably result in a better situation all around with regard to food supplies. My best wishes will certainly follow you.

Thank you for the arrangements you are making for taking care of the Administration during your absence.

Cordially and sincerely yours,
Woodrow Wilson
