TLS as president, one page, 6.75 x 8.75, White House letterhead, November 24, 1944. Letter to Carter T. Barron, chairman of the Variety Clubs of America. In part: "I appreciate your kind invitation to be present…when the Variety Clubs of America present the 1944 Silver Scroll to the Secretary of State, Cordell Hull. I know of no one more richly deserving of this signal honor. I should enjoy very much being present on this occasion, and am very sorry that it is impossible for me to be with you tonight. But I hope I may take this occasion through your organization to thank the members of the amusement industry who have done so much for the good of the community in our national life. I am thinking of such things as War Bond drives, Red Cross activities, participation in USO activities, the March of Dimes for the benefit of crippled children, the maintenance of children's camps all over the country, and in many kindred fields. The members of your industry—management, actors and actresses alike—seem to have unlimited capacity and energy in giving their time and effort to good cause." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original White House transmittal envelope.
