Box 869, Norfolk, Va. My dear Mrs. Townsend: Permit me to acknowledge receipt of your letter addressed to Mrs. Park, during Mrs. Park's absence from Washington. I know that she will appreciate it when she returns to Washington and the spirit which prompted your writing. Replying to your questions as to what you can do in your "Princess Anne County right now," I should say that you can continue to familiarize your neighbors and friends and the organizations in your county with the benefit to be derived under this law so that there will be a pressure of public sentiment back of the Governor and the legislature when they accept this Act and make the appropriation to meet the "50-50" provision of it. Senator Swanson and Representative Deal will have nothing to do directly with the handling of this work. It will be up to your Governor to accept the Act provisionally until the legislature meets and to the legislature to accept it and provide for an appropriation and to the State Health Department to carry out the work. I would suggest that you write in to your Sttae League headquarters for an outline of the general plan of work for Virginia, because of course some concerted action of the women along this line will be planned too.
