Typed letter signed “Herbert Hoover,” 7.25×10.5, personal stationery but sent from The Waldorf Astoria Towers, New York City, May 11, 1938. To Paul C. Smith, editor of the San Francisco Chronicle, in full:
Many thanks for yours of the 9th.
I have not undertaken to make any address before the United States Chamber of Commerce. The fact is I would not do such a thing, so we might keep open the chance to talk to the Junior Chamber of Commerce some day.
As a matter of fact, what I need is press protection when I am traveling about.
Fine condition, mailing folds.
