Jan. 14, 1913My dear Mr. McCarthy: --
We had a great deal of discussion pro and con about the Legislative Reference Bureau in New York and I think that Dean Lewis' letter represented it quite faithfully. We are all hoping that you can direct its destinies. I wish you could have heard some of the appreciative things which were said of you there.
This attempt to democratize the funds of the Progressive Party has its disadvantages, but I believe it is the right thing to do.
Always faithfully yours,
