Text

My dear Mr. Rickard:

I quite agree with the Secretary of Agriculture that it would not be wise to fix the price of wheat for the next year without first having a conference with the National Farmers Advisory Council. No matter what the result, they would wish to be consulted, I am sure, and would feel aggrieved if they are not, besides which their counsel may be of capital importance to us. I hope that this will commend itself to your judgment and that you will see your way to arranging an early meeting with them.

Cordially and sincerely yours,
Woodrow Wilson
