MEMORANDUM FOR THE VICE PRESIDENT

Dear Harry: -

I think your idea has a lot of merit in it and as soon as I get back I will talk with Frank.

F.D.R.

April 5, 1945

Dear Mr. President:

Hope you are having a good rest. Hate to bother you but I have a suggestion to make.

Why don't you make Frank Walker Federal Loan Administrator and make Bob Hannegan Postmaster General? Seems to me this would make everybody happy and solve the situation.

Hannegan did the P.M.G's job in the campaign as well as it was ever done and he is entitled to the recognition.

Walker is as able a business man and administrator as the country has. Both are 100% for you.

Hope you'll like my suggestion.

Sincerely, Harry
