To Franklin D. Roosevelt

My dear Mr. President:

Please accept my warm congratulations on your great victory at the polls.1 From a purely personal point of view I look forward to the meeting of the inevitable difficult problems of the coming months with renewed assurance, in confidence that they can be handled as successfully as recent victories would indicate they had been in the past.

Believe me, with great respect and complete loyalty to your leadership,

Faithfully yours,
