Mrs. Samuel M. Wilson,
my dear Mrs. Wilson:

I would consider it a very great personal favor and
one which I hepe to be able to reciprocate sometime, if you would
send me at your earliest convenience, the name and address of the
District or County Chairman in the territory you represent on the
State Committee (and Woman Associate Chairman if you have them in
your State), or if you represent more than one district, of all
of the local Chairmen in your territory.

I am trying very hard to build up a model State organi—
zation in New York, and I feel that almost every State has learned
from practical experience some particular way of doing some thing

. which is an improvement on general practice.

The heads of the State Organization in your State have
been most kind in cooperating with me by furnishing information
as to the machinery of their headquarters and I am new anxious to
learn from those in direct contact with the voters of the methods
they employ both in disseminating literature, and in getting out
the vote on Election Day. I feel that this can only be obtained
from the County or District Chairmen and Committeemen themselves.

I hope that you Will not consider this too great a favor
to ask and remember that it is all in the interest of a better or-
ganization and stronger Democratic Party.

If you are ever in New York, I hepe you will not fail to
visit our Democratic State Committee Headquarters, located at #351
Madison Avenue, directly across from the Hotel Biltmore, New York
City, and that you will feel at liberty to call on me to give you
any assistance or do anything I can to make your stay pleasant
While in this City.

Yours very truly,
C h a i r m a n
