Benjamin Strong Jr. Papers, New York Federal Reserve Bank




My dear Mr. Imhoff:
Replying to your letter of February 28th, received in Mr. Strong’s absence, I have taken the liberty of referring your letter to Mr. George R. Van Namee, Secretary of the Citizens’ Committee in charge of the meeting to be held at the Metropolitan Opera House on the evening of March 4th.
From what I read in the newspapers, I understand that the seating capacity of the Metropolitan house is a little over 3300, and the written requests for tickets so far received by the Committee number close to fifty thousand. However, I have sent a personal note to Mr. Van Namee asking him to kindly give your letter consideration.
Trusting you will have the pleasure of hearing the President speak on the occasion mentioned, believe me,
Very truly yours,

Secretary to the Governor.
