August 10, 1921 Mrs. Jessie E. Townsend, Director, Second Congressional District, Virginia League of Women Voters, Norfolk, Virginia My dear Mrs. Townsend: I have the letter of August 8, signed by yourself and a number of other members of your organization thanking the Interstate and Foreign Commerce Committee of the House for the hearings it gave the so-called Sheppard-Towner bill and expressing the wish that the bill be favorably reported to the House of Representatives n the near future. I am glad to say that I expect to support the measure both in committee and on the floor of the House and you may be assured I will do what can to have a favorable report ordered in the near future. With kindest regards and best wishes, I beg to remain, sincerely yours, J. Stanley Webster
