Dear Bills
the night I set with the group at the Alta Club
in Salt Lake when X was recently in Utah in an effort
to answer the monetary and economic questions which
they propounded, you suggested that I should write a
pamphlet outlining my general philosophy of the recovery program as X discussed it informally before
that group*
I have not undertaken to do that as I believe
X have covered j y views on the subject in several
a
speeches which I have made and X am, therefore, en­
closing copies of one address X made be£€re the Ameri­
can Bankers Association last November and one which X
made before the Wharton Institute in Sew York last
week*
If you are interested in having additional
copies, X will be glad to send them on *o you*
fit|t kindest personal regards,

Sincerely yours,

I * S. Eccles,

MANAGER

May 26th. 1936.

Hon. Marriner S. Eocles,
Chairman, Federal Reserve System,
Washington, B.C.
Dear Marriner:
Thanks for your letter of May 14th., with the copies of
your talks. These embrace substantially many, of the things that you
told us at our Alta Club dinner, and I would like you to send me
100 copies of each of these speeches. Please also send me a bill for
preparing and mailing these.
I want to distribute these among some of my business friends
here, whom I know will be very much interested in receiving them, and who,
despite their politics, are broad-minded enough to recognize such a clear,
concise explanation of what the administration has been endeavoring to do,
as you have set forth.
During the past few months there has been a decided lull among
my Republican friends in their condemnation of President Roosevelt, and
I think that many of them are beginning to see the necessity and the wisdom
of most of the administration policies.
We are having delightful weather here now, and everybody is
thinking and talking fishing, and getting ready to spend Decoration Day
up around Yellowstone park. I hope you get out this summer for some
fishing and a rest up in that vicinity.




Again many thanks for your thoughtfulness in remembering ray request.
Kind personal regards.
Sincerely,
