Letter from Albert H. Wilhelm of Ben Avon, Pennsylvania, to R.E. Johnson in Memphis, Tennessee, written on June 5, 1927. A friend of Johnson's, Wilhelm criticizes President Calvin Coolidge's tardy response to the disastrous Mississippi River flood that year. He notes that instead of trying to enlist the help of the Red Cross, Coolidge should have mobilized the army much earlier. He praises the appointment of Vice-President Herbert Hoover to head the relief effort.
