Dear Randolph:
Glad you approve of the bill just signed.
I only wish that you were as enlightened on the
matter of diversifying Treasury offerings specifically by the shorter or intermediate open end
issues, Since you so clearly perceive the merits
of this bill, I am encouraged to hope that you will
also see only merit in other things 1 advocate from
time to time. Anyway, I appreciate your thoughtful
note.
Sincerely yours,
