Reply to Telegram From President Hoover About Intergovernmental Debts
The President, Pratt, Kansas.
I appreciate your cordial telegram. On the subjects to which you refer, as in all matters relating to the welfare of the country, I am glad to cooperate in every appropriate way, subject, of course, to the requirements of my present duties as Governor of this State.
I shall be delighted to confer with you in Washington, but I have been confined to the house with a slight cold and I am, therefore, not able to suggest a definite date. I shall call you on the telephone as soon as the time of my departure for the South has been determined.
May I take the liberty of suggesting that we make this meeting wholly informal and personal. You and I can go over the entire situation.
I had already arranged to meet a number of the Democratic leaders of the present Congress late this month at Warm Springs. It will be helpful for me to have your views and all pertinent information when I meet with them.
I hope that you also will see them at the earliest opportunity, because, in the last analysis, the immediate question raised by the British, French and other notes creates a responsibility which rests upon those now vested with executive and legislative authority.
My kindest regards,
FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT
