Dear Mr. Eccles:
I thank you for your letter of February 23 enclosing
correspondence with Sirs. Bowen in regard to the advancement
of national opera.
I should be glad to mention this to Colonel Waite when
he returns from his trip, but I should point out that such
a project would not be eligible under the Act as it stands.
Similar activities carried on by the Civil Works Administration have, so I am informed, been financed by relief funds
rather than by the money made available by the Public! Works
I do not know just what the status of such a project
would be under the resolution passed by Congress the other
day, as I have not seen this resolution in its final form.
Very sincerely yours,

Hon. Marriner S. Eccles,
Assistant to the Secretary of the Treasury,
Treasury Department,
Washington, D. C.
