My dear Mr. Hoover

Before signing the enclosed, which I understand was prepared by your Administration, it occurs to me to ask this question:

You will remember that at the meeting of our Wednesday conference on the Wednesday before the last, it was provisionally agreed that on account of the necessity of conserving coal there should be an entire stoppage of the production of malt products. If that is to be done, I hardly see the necessity for issuing the amended regulations enclosed, and the question I want to ask is, Do these regulations represent an earlier conclusion?

Cordially and faithfully yours,

Woodrow Wilson
