UNITED STATES FOOD ADMINISTRATION

Mobile, Alabama
September 6th, 1918.

MR. P.S. RIDSDALE, Secretary,
National War Garden Commission,
Washington, D.C.

Dear Mr. Ridsdale:
     I desire to tender my sincere thanks for the books which you have furnished for distribution and use among the war gardeners of Mobile, and as encouragement and assistance to others to take up this splendid work conducive not only to increased supply of food products, but to the health and happiness of those who wisely give Mother Earth the attention which just at this time she all the more richly deserves.
     It is needless for me to assure you that the books have been extremely helpful. I consider them the most complete and serviceable ever produced; and excepting only the family Bible, the foundation of all ethics and morality as well as the common law, these books are of more vital importance to every householder, in fact, good citizens throughout the land, than most printed matter obtainable.
     Your books on canning and drying are likewise of inestimable value, and your splendid co-operation in the common cause of increasing and conserving the food supply in our present crisis meets with the heartiest appreciation.

Very sincerely,
(Signed) HENRY A. FORCHHEIMER,
Federal Food Administration Board.

     We have found your publications of great value in our work in this State and it gives me pleasure to thank you for your prompt and cordial compliance with all of our request.
     Your book on War Vegetable Gardening and the one devoted to Canning and Drying are filled with information of great value to the gardener and housewife.
     It has been a source of great satisfaction to us to be able to distribute your books in every County in Iowa and we have used care to place them in the hands of people who need them and who are constantly calling for just the information contained in them.
     We fell that your co-operation has been of great importance.

Faithfully yours,
