Dear Marriner:
You did a splendid job at Fort Worth.
I had anticipated, as so many of our people had not
had an opportunity of understanding the problem dis­
cussed by you, that they would be interested, but I
did not realize how completely you could keep them
interested in the subject. Your familiarity with
the detail of the subject discussed and the clearness
with which you presented it made a profound impres­
sion on many of the people. I am sure you would
agree with me that they listened.
I am grateful to you for the time and
trouble you took to make this meeting, and I sin­
cerely trust that you suffered no inconvenience by
so doing. If you will have your office advise us of
the expense involved, we shall be very happy to re­
imburse you.
Again permit me to personally thank
you for what you did.

Hon. Marriner S. Eccles,
Federal Reserve System,
Washington, D. C.

Dear Russ:
It was most thoughtful of you to write me relative
to my recent appearance before your people in Fort worth.
I am always glad to have the reactions of others
to my public appearances and I am happy to know that you and
your friends felt that my address was provocative and challeng­
ing. I appreciate your complimentary expressions.
I enjoyed speaking to your group as well as meeting
many of your friends and associates in the oil business.
With kindest personal regards, I am
Sincerely yours,

Mr. Russell B. Brown,
king Building,
Washington, D. C.
P. S. Relative to sending you a bill to cover
the expenses incurred in the trip, it has
not been my policy to collect such ex­
penses and: I see no reason to make exception
in this case.
