Mr. Walter W. Head, President,
General American Life
Insurance Company,
St. Louis, Missouri.
Dear Mr, Heads
Your letter of May 2k with regard to the recent conferences on war financing is very much appreciated* tinder all the attendant circumstances the
situation has been worked out in a way that apparently
is satisfactory from the standpoint of the Secretary,
who bears of course the primary responsibility, and we
all desire to cooperate with him in every possible way
to assure the success of future war loan drives.
I trust that I may see you under more auspicious circumstances and have the pleasure of talking
with you when you are again in Washington*




With kindest personal regards,
Sincerely yours,

M. S* Booleg,
Chairman.
