Text

Dear Mr. Tumulty

I am sending herewith a letter in the nature of a report to the President on the work of our food savers during the year. I think it would reflect credit on the Administration and would give encouragement and satisfaction to all these people who have co-operated so much during the year if this could be given publicity.

I am asking our office in Washington to communicate with you for your approval on giving it to the press and will ask you to allow them to tive it out for publication as they will want to give it very wide distribution to the country press.I am expecting to get off tonight.

With all sorts of good wishes
I am
Yours faithfully,

[Herbert Hoover]
