Dear Mr. Tead:
4/1

Your leAer of September 30 brings me the disappointment, bd realizing now small has been the distribution of Mr.
Strono's book

but I suppose there is nothing that can be done

about it now.

Sic transit 7,1oria Iundi.

You are really mach better able to judge.tdan I as to
the probable future demruids for the boo's, judglik; from the rules

in recent months.

I suspect, however, that the economic devel-

opments of recent months hvrc driven frog people's minds the
series of problems Governor Strong dealt 7Tith.

It seems to me

that the four hundred remaining copies will be adequate to meA
the demand.

sincerely yours,

Lear Dr. Burgess:

I don't like to bother you about details
but I think this is sufficiently important to take a
moment of your time.
e printed the book "Interpretations of
Federal Reserve Policy" from type because of some doubt
as to whether tnere vould be a need for a second printing.
I find now that of the stock of one thousand
five hundred which we printed, we have four hundred bound
books left.
I am wondering therefore if you would see any
objection to our destroying the standing type, since the
monthly rental charge of this seems to be mounting up.

whether it would work out.

I think the price ha..7 not been

Dear Dr. Burgess:

I wonder if, from the point of view of distribution to the executives and directors of
the Federal Reserve Banks, your book of
Yr. Strong's papers has shot its bolt.
It has occurred to me that it might be possible to make a snecial printing of the book
for such use with a special title page at a
substantially reduced price, if a sufficiently
large order could be procured, say five hundred
or a thousand. 'le might be able to do this
for somewhere around $2.25 to 52.00.
If this is a wild idea, deposit this letter in
the waste basket.

I am enclosing herewith a sheaf of the reviews and I
think you will be impressed by the rather complete
coverage by the financial and banking papers of the

I have been looking over the returns of our direct mail

we have been unable to find any one type of list that
it really pays to circularize in terms of the number of
copies sold by mail, -- the one exception being the list

any further suggestions to make about lists, I should certainly like to have them. The ordinary run of bankers'

Dear Dr. Burgess:

Your letter of December S came to me as a very
pleasant surprise, but it pleases me to know that you
found yourself in agreement with my comments on the book.
Although I only had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Strong
for a few brief minutes on one of the many occasions when
when he was in London after the war, I have followed his
work and admired his personality for many years, so that
I can readily appreciate the pleasure which you found in
editing his banking papers.
At the present time I myself am working upon
the preparation of a modest volume on Central Banking as
it has operated during the past decade, and if I might
presume so much upon the time of one whom I know to be
very busy I should like to meet you personally at some
time during the next few months in order to discuss with
you some of the problems in that field.
Again thanking you for your letter, I remain
Very truly yours,

My dear Mr. Governor,

I have just received six copies of the volume
which is edited under the auspices of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York,
and devoted to the writings and speeches of your lamented predecessor,
Benjamin Strong.

I thank you most cordially for sending them to me;

I greatly appreciate the gift.

No better homage could be paid to the

great personality of Governor Benjamin Strong, and to his intelligence
and kindness, than thus to collect and fix, in concrete form, the expression of his generous thought.

Mr. Burgess acquitted himself of the task which you
entrusted to him with his usual competence;

he has put into clear relief

the fundamental ideas of Governor Strong's ptilicies.

For us, who cherish so

faithfully the memory of the great departed friend, this work

serves as

an occasion to recall the bonds of collaboration which came to be formed
between our two Banks, under his generous guidance.




Again, Mr. Governor, I offer you my thanks and the
expression of my personal regard.

Dear Mr.Governor,

H.

I beg to acknowledge with best thanO the receipt
of the two copies,advised by your favour of November
5th, of the collection of writings and speeches of the
late Governor Benjamin Strong, illustrating the policy
of the Federal Reserve Banks. Considering the decisive
role which Benjamin Strong was called to play at the
foundation and development of the Federal Reserve System
his statements on the policy of the Federal Reserve BanA
which I partly knew from the Hearings before the House
Committee and from other publications, are of greatest
significance. It deserves full appreciation to have
summarized all these excellent speeches and articles.
Together with the work of Paul M.Warburg,which I have




finished to study

just now, the collection of

Benjamin Strong's "Interpretations", most accurately
edited by 4.Randolph Burgess, constitute an exhaustive

and very instructive information on the origin,working
and the intentions of the Federal Reserve System
and will be of greatest value for all banks of issue.
I am,therefore, very indebted to you, dear Mr.Governoi
for the attention you kindly paid me by sending these
books.

Dear Governor:

acknowledging your lett_r of November 5th. and the splendid
book prepared by Mr. Burgess.
As you know, I arc taking up matters rather
deliberately but am getting stronger and feel increasingly
able to take on more but must be careful, which I believe is
in accordance vdth the advice contained in your good letter
sent to me at Cape Cod some months ago.

The book is a prize and I am slowly reading it
and am sure I shall find it of great interest, not alone on
account of the splendid ability of your predecessor and Mr.
Burgess, the compilor of the book, but Ithat is perhaps more,
owing to my long and warm acquaintance with Governor Strong.

I thank you very much for the book and trust
you will soon be back with us again in the best of health and
spirits.

Very sincerely yours,

It would have been a real misfortune to let

Reading them is an inspiration, and the book will be invaluable for reference.
There has been so much curiosity as to That the

the first authoritative sketch of its activities is of exceptional interest. I have already shown my copy to several

Dear Governor Harrison It was quite unexpected to be
favored with Governor Strong's writings and speeches, and
I appreciate very much the book containing them received
this morning, which you so kindly sent me.

Governor Strong was so dominating an influence
in the development and operation of the Federal Reserve

and be a helpful study for those who still are connected
with the System.

Dr. W. Randolph Burgess
Deputy Governor
Federal Reserve Bank of New York
33 Liberty Street
New York, N.Y.
Dear Dr. Burgess:-

Thank you very much for sending me a copy of "Interpretations of Federal Reserve Policy."
Already I have read your very fine introduction and also the concluding chapter. In the latter I find a statemPnt on page 313 which has interested me greatly and is especially pertinent
to much of the monetary discussion going on these days. This statement is
as follows:"I do not believe and have never believed that any method of fixing
the general level of commodity prices can be devised which would
enable a monetary and credit policy by a bank of issue to accomplish that object."

A statement made by the late Congressman dingo on page 330
has also strongly appealed to me. He raises this question;" That is there in our experience as a people to say that a political board sitting at Washington can tell any one in this country
how more efficiently to conduct his business?"
From conversations I have had with you, I am sure you will
understand why both of these statements have been so greatly appreciated by
myself.

At the first opportunity I shall read the entire volume and
will then make a careful review of it for publication in The Bankers kagazine
and I have no doubt that several of the statements contained in the book will
furnish text for editorials in The Bankers Magazine.
It does not occur to me at the moment how I can be of substantial assistance in making the book known to the public other than by the
means above stat4but you may be sure of my readiness to co-operate with you
in the attainment of this object.

This book brings into strong relief the very great services
to our own country and to the world at large which Governor Strong rendered
by his wise and constructive policies. !y only regret is that some of us did
not fully appreciate this distinguished service during Governor Strong's lifetime.

Dear Sprague:

We are mailing to Governor Norman half a dozen copies of the book of
Governor Strong's speeches and writings which has just come from the press.

One of these copies is intended for you, but we mailed them all together as
that was probably the easiest way of doing it, and I have no doubt that the
whole half dozen can find someone to adopt them at the bank.

I hope gel will

like the general scheme and arrangement of it, aad I know you will enjoy going

over the documents, net the lust valuable of which is the address before your
students et Iarvard.
I remember that Then we launched my book someone at the 7.ank of

England, I think

was Lubbock, was good enough to give some thought to the

question of proper publicity in London, and I think talked with a number of
the writers.

I have taken the liberty of suggesting to Harpers that they have

their London man call ueon you to discuss this question, for I know that you
will be interested in thedietribatjeft of the book.

Harpers Till have a number

of review copies to distribute, and you and some of the others can probably
give them ideas as to where they ahoul:'. go.

Layton, of course, should get a

copy, and editors of other important economic journals, ac well as the London
Times and some of the press.

But you will know muci more about that than we do.

I suppose that George will be there when you get this note, and that
you will be having a good time with him.

I wish I were with you.

Sincerely yours,

Mr. O. M. W. Sprague,
