HOOVER, HERBERT. (1874-1964). Thirty-first president of the United States. TLS. (“Herbert Hoover”). As secretary of commerce. 1/2p. 4to. Washington, D.C., April 20, 1928. On a sheet of his imprinted stationery to GEORGE H. LORIMER (1867-1937), editor-in-chief of The Saturday Evening Post.
The editorial and statement in this week’s issue of the Saturday Evening Post are of most powerful importance. We are having them reproduced in thousands and distributing them to those few people who do not subscribe to the Post. Some are taking the editorial as an advertisement and I think one chain of newspapers is about to republish it entirely. I am indeed grateful.
