- HOOVER LETTER WITH CONTENT!
HOOVER, Herbert (1874-1964). 31st President of the United
- Very Good Content Typed Letter Signed, boldly, "Herbert Hoover", on
the imprinted stationery of Department of Commerce, Office of
the Secretary, Washington, May 5, 1922. To Ralph M. Easley, The
National Civic Federation. Hoover writes in part:
hereby decline responsibility for anybody's opinions of Russia.
I don't care who they are they are undoubtedly all wrong, including
to the coal strike, there is nothing doing here. A number of
nebulous propositions for meeting this situation have been submitted
and I have been trying hard to digest them all. One or two of
them show slight indications of intelligence, and I think if
Mr. Lewis had some expert who knows the conditions of underground
work and something about the business of buying and selling coal,
it would be a good thing if they studied the underlying questions
- Three little nicks in left margin from
a binder and someone has drawn a line in red pencil under Hoover's
fine signature. A very interesting letter, referring to John
L. Lewis, the Labor Leader and head of the United Mine Workers.
