October 10, 1936.

My dear Governor:
Thanks so much for your very cordial
letter of the seventh, I am quite confident that
there are many of us who.have been and are still
in government who put the welfare of the government ahead of personal interests. This I have
enjoyed doing for over twenty years of continuous
public service and, of course, when that privilege
is denied me, I obviously take the consequences.
1 certainly appreciate the generous
comments in your letter and expecting as I do to
be in Washington for November and December, 1 hope
to have the pleasure of seeing you*
While I have not been in good health,
I think I am feeling better since 1 have been
relieved of all governmental responsibility*
Trusting you are well, I am, with kind
Very truly yours,

Honorable Marriner 3. Eccles,
Board of Governors,
Federal Reserve System,
Washington, D,C.
