Food Administrator’s File

The British Ambassador on Special Mission ( Reading ) to the Food Administrator ( Hoover )

Dear Mr. Hoover : I have to-day received a reply to the telegram which was despatched to London after the discussion on Thursday last of your proposals about wheat. I am glad to be able to tell you that the Wheat Executive agree to the supply of 2,000,000 bushels of Canadian wheat for the Buffalo mills in May, as a final allocation of Canadian wheat for this cereal year. They say that they are naturally reluctant that the supply of bulk wheat should be reduced, but they warmly appreciate the efforts you are making to increase the supply available for export in the coming months, and are therefore most anxious to assist as far as practicable in the solution of your distribution problem.

Yours sincerely,

Reading
