Dear Mr. President

Secretary Houston has requested an expression of opinion as to the desirability of consulting the National Farmers’ Advisory Council before submitting to your the joint suggestion of the Department of Agriculture and the Food Administrationn in regard to announcing a guaranteed wheat price for 1919. We discussed the matter with Secretary Houston this morning, and it seems wise to us to call the National Farmers’ Advisory Council together at the earliest date possible, and secure their views; and I believe that this is also the conclusion of Secretary Houston who, I am informed, will personally present to you his views as well as ours, more in detail.

Faithfully yours,
[EDGAR RICKARD]
