January 4, 1939.

Dear Marriner:
I read with absorbing interest
your letter of December 22, 1938, addressed
to Senator Harry F • Byrd. "While I know
that your correspondence is heavy, I cannot
refrain from, adding another letter to express
my sincere gratification because you answered
Senator Byrd with such a forceful and logical
presentation of your views.
I wish that we had more officials
in the Government who could recognize the
problems of present day economics and seek
the solution by practical reasoning as you
do.
Kindest regards.
Cordially yours,

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