NATIONAL GULF-ATLANTIC SHIP CANAL ASSOCIATION
July 22, 1942
Mr. Bert N. Dosh,
Member, Executive Committee
of Canal Counties,
I want to extend to you my personal congratula-
tion and appreciation for the canal victory which you,
through faith, work and devotion to the task over the years,
have made possible. You have accomplished victory over
the most powerful opposition in the United States.
Senators Pepper and Andrews both did a splendid
job and Senator Pepper, as Acting Chairman of the sub-
Committee on Commerce, handled the bill marvelously on the
floor, particularly during the parliamentary maneuvers at
the time of voting.
Please let's not overlook writing and having
our friends write both of these Senators and give them a
real pat on the back for a job well done. This is important!
The next task that faces us is to get the work
under actual construction, and we have already started upon
this phase. You may depend upon it that the opposition
will not diminish its efforts, but will increase them at
every point right up to the day that the canal is actually
opened to traffic.
Warmest personal regards.
WAE F. COACHMAN, JR.,
Executive Vice President.
