Dear Edgar:

Please find enclosed herewith copy of the letter I have written to the President on the results of conservation. It is desirable I think that we should give this the widest sort of publicity and I have written the enclosed note to Tumulty. My idea is that you gshould give it to the press for release five or six days hence and that if you get a chance, you have it printed in full boiler plate page.

If Pearl is distressed over any of the figures, tell him they were fully corroborated.

Yours faithfully,
[Herbert Hoover]
