Honorable Bill Carleton
o/o University of Florida
Gainesville, Florida

Dear Bill:

I saw in the Junior Chamber of Commerce news that you
delivered the principal address at the State conference
in Ocala last week end. I was sorry that I couldn't
make the conference, and hear you talk, but I had just
returned from a most enjoyable trip to Houston, Texas,
and was afraid that if I left again so soon, my wife
would tell me to keep on going.

I am supposed to make a speech in Bayfront Park next
Monday night at the celebration of the 44th arriversary
of the City of Miami, and talk about two subjects, first
the American Way of Life, and secondly, the City of
Miami. If you have a talk that would fit into this
program, I should appreciate your sending it along to
me.

I would like to hear from you particularly, as to how
you feel about the President's third term aspirations,
and what you think the future of the Country would be
with Wendell Willkie as President of the United States.
I feel at the present time that I am not going to vote
for Roosevelt for a third term, but instead will depart
for the first time from the folds of the Democratic
party, to vote for a Republican.

We have still got plenty of room down here, and it is
very nice and cool, so if at any time you can come down
and spend a little while with us, we would love to have
you.

With best regards, I remain

Singer. y,


GS:f
P.S. Incidentally, Bill Brannon fro Lake City, and I
started the first club of Carleton r Senator on the
trip out to Houston and back.
