My dear Mrs. Barrett:

It is not easy to imagine a single reason why the work of the Florence Crittenton Mission should not have the most unqualified endorsement from every good citizen. I can think of a long list of the most persuasive reasons why that endorsement should be given, and for myself I gladly extend it.

I wish you the fullest encouragement and cooperation in the splendid work you are carrying on.

Very truly yours,

Calvin Coolidge

Coolidge, Calivin
