President & Wife;
is the first time I or Any of my people wrote Any president.
And I am here to ask you for $8.oo to get me a winter coat.
This may seem very strange for a girl 12 years old to do but
my father is a poor honest working Laundry man and he works
on a percentage a week we have 10 in our family and my father
does not have enough money to get him a bottle of Beer. He is
a democrat and did all he could to have you voted. The N.R.A.
[National Recovery Administration] is coming alone fine. As
little as I am I know just as much about depression as a grown
person. I'm 12 years old and am in the 8th grade curly hair
Brunette & brown eyes & fair complexion & weigh
76 lbs. Hoping to hear from you soon I remain your true Democrat
We would have loved if Mrs. Roosevelt when she was visiting
Logan to come around to our small town she was only about 60
miles from here.
