Typed letter signed “Herbert Hoover,” 7.25×10.5, personal stationery, August 19, 1938. To Paul C. Smith, editor of the San Francisco Chronicle, in full:

I have not made any agreement with the McClure Syndicate.  They have been pressing the subject for some months.

I heard a day or so ago that they were going to see how big an area they could cover and then see if they could convince me to undertake it.  I assume that this is what they are now doing.  I don’t like it.

I would like to see the character of the representation to the Chronicle .  Apparently, I will have to take some steps.

Fine condition, mailing folds.
