Letter to Harry L. Hopkins Concerning the Roosevelt National Memorial Committee.

October 01, 1945

Dear Mr. Hopkins:

I have your letter of September twenty-ninth and approve the action taken by the committee appointed by me at the meeting of September fifth.

Now that your recommendations have been made, we can all proceed to take speedy action to set up a national memorial worthy of the historic achievements in war and peace of the late illustrious President.

Very sincerely,

HARRY S. TRUMAN

Note: Mr. Hopkins' letter, released with the President's reply, dealt with plans for designating permanent officers and enlarging the membership of the memorial committee.
