Ambassador Joseph Pq Kennedy
Waldorf Towers
now York,, New York

Dear Ambassador kMnedy

Thank you very umoh for your graoious letter of Miy 21. I roeret
that because of the pressure of work I was unable to write the
memorandum I had planned

The southern press oarried lon extraote from your Oclethorpe ad-
dross. I thought it was splendid* There was muh favorable com-
ment in spite of the trend in this State in which in all candor
seams to me to be interventioristse I am reluctant'to admit this
after all zm barnstoring '

It seem to me that in the light of the Presidaet's recent speoh
nothing effeotie ean now be done. Events alone will 'tell. I
feel rather disoouraged and will welcome the vacation whioh will
soon begin for ae.

I hope to see you in the middle or far West later in the s~ueoer.

I know you will enjoy your visit to Notre Dwae. I think you will
find the atmosphere of the middle West somewhat different frmc
that of the South*

Sincerely yours

William GO Carleton
