Ify dear Governor Towers t
If you have a wailing list for your addresses
sad could pot ma on it, Z would very such appreciate it.
Quantities of speeches eons to ny office that were better
never put in the nails* but yours are not ami would not
be anong then* Voting in an American negating recently
a pertinent quotation from a speech of you*** 1 made a
mental note to ask you for copies in the future of your
public talks end statements* I an aoet favorably impressed by the success you have had in finanoing outside
the banks*
Z hope that if you have occasion to cone to
Washington you will not fall to let ns know.
Sincerely yours,
