Letter Expressing Appreciation for a Treatise on the German Hubers in the Eighteenth Century.
[Released February 22, 1930. Dated January 14, 1930]
My dear Sir:
Some time ago the original script of your treatise on Ellerstadt and its generation of Hubers in the first half of the 18th century was transmitted to me together with a picture of the old church at Ellerstadt, described by you in your monograph.
I take this occasion to thank you kindly for your treatise, the contents of which are of great interest to me and other members of my family.
[Herr Professor, Dr. Daniel Haeberle, Roederweg 1, Heidelberg, Germany]
Note: The President's paternal ancestors emigrated in 1698 from Switzerland to Ellerstadt, Germany. Around 1750, after their arrival in America, the family name was Anglicized from Huber to Hoover.
