F. A. C. P.
Thank you for your letter of the 23rde Frankly,
I have no desire to serve in Washington. Under the circum-
stances, however, I feel that I owe it to the state to at least
consider the question carefully. Unless I can develop some
personal interest in the matter--and unless there is general
apprehension on the part of the rank and file of the people of
this state, the answer must be a definite no.
I will give the problem some immediate thought.
