“…A WORKING MAN…IS THE MAN…
I AM MORE ANXIOUS TO REPRESENT
THAN ANY OTHER IN AMERICAN LIFE.”

“That’s a very kind and friendly letter. Believe me I appreciate it to the full. I am particularly pleased to hear from you because as you say you are a working man. In my own way I claim to be a pretty hard working man myself, but it is the man of your type I am more anxious to represent than any other in American life.”
