28 School Street Orange, Mass* Dec. 28, 1938 Marriner S* Eccles Chairman Federal Reserve Board Washington, D. C# Dear Chairman Eccles: Bully for youl Your letter to Senator Byrd of Virginia should arrest the attention and meet the approval of every liberalminded citizen in the country* x t is not only irrefutable in argument, but a just and forceful rebuke to that type of advocate who act and speak as if in the direct employ of corporate or special interests* The Senator's brother the Admiral, toured the country a few years ago as the hired-man of a capitalistic organization opposed to government expenditures for Soldier's Bonuses. This from a man receiving a handsome bonus himself from the government ever since ^ e turned an ankle while on parade as a cadet at Annapoiis* I guess its in the blood of these Byrd boys to win public attention and gain personal prestige - the senator has been mentioned as a prospective Presidential candidate - rather than serve the public interests in anything they may premote or advocate. But thanks for that letter* It is a defense of the Rooseveltadministrative policies from a new angle which I predict will attract nation-wide attention and baffle Senator Byrd and his monopolistic backers in trying to refute* Sincerely yours Everett W. Coleman January 3, 1939* Mr* Everett v«. , k8 School o t r e e t , Orange, Massachusetts, Dear i£r* Colernan; This is to acknowledge receipt of your letter of December ^8th witn reference to my recent reply to benator Byrd. I was glad to have your comments, and I wanted you to know that 1 appreciated your thoughtfulness in writing to me. bincerely yours, M. b. Eccles, Chairman. ET:b
