The Food Administrator ( Hoover) to the Ambassador in Great Britain ( Page)1


Will you kindly inform Sheldon, Durand, Simms and others interested that do not believe any conclusive program of next year’s food supplies to Allies can be arrived at before the middle of July when all our crops are defined and our animal resources recounted. In this view I propose to come myself to Europe with technical staff to consider the whole situation with our European food colleagues.
