Lot 130: TLS, one page, 8 x 10.5, American Relief Administration letterhead, June 23, 1920. Letter to Lewis Strauss, in part: "It has indeed been a great honor to have you feel that I am fitted for the great office of President. That you should have been willing to have borne the labor and expense of going to Chicago, and to have given the zeal of a crusader to this purpose is a double honor. The question as to who wins in these contests is to me of less importance than that we keep faith in the great issues before us. We shall have years of great trial in the solution of most difficult questions and, although we have not had our own way as to the tools for their solution, we have no less obligation to stand vigorously for the right handling of these issues." In fine condition, with slight creasing to edges.
