Summary:
Felix Frankfurter here sends Governor Franklin Roosevelt the draft of a challenge to President Hoover on the country’s unemployment situation, writing: “The latest official utterance on unemployment from the White House … follows out the prediction made two months earlier and assures the country that the crises is virtually passed. The President’s informants are ‘governors and mayors all over the country,’ who ‘with one exception,’ are agreed that the worst is over. That exception obviously is the State of New York.� Roosevelt forwards this draft on to Frances Perkins.
