We, therefore, extend to you a nost cordial invitation to address our convention at a luncheon on Ifay 22nd. We earnestly hmee your re^ly will enable us to announce t© the Indiana Banlcere th«>t you will be with us.

Mitchell, President, The Indiana "ankers association, Union Aitle Building, Indianapolis, Indiana. My dear Mr. Mitchell: I have your letter of February 29th inviting me to speak at the annual convention of the Indiana Bankers Association to be held on May 21st and 22d> and much as I should like to have the opportunity to be with you at that time, I regret to say that it will not be possible* Because of the pressure of duties here, I have been obliged to make no further commit ments which would take me away from Washington during the next few months. I quite agree with you that Federal Reserve policies and purposes are widely misunderstood and I am, therefore, all the more anxious to do whatever is possible so far as I am concerned to make both policies and objectives more understandable. Your cordial invitation is very much appre ciated and I trust that at some future date I may have an opportunity to meet with the Indiana bankers. Sincerely yours, M. S. Eccles, Chairman. ET:b
