RXJSSELL B. B R O W N R IN G BU IL D IN G , WASHINGTON, D. C. October 7, 1949 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. Sinawrely, muUK Hon. Marriner S.
