“My job is purely political, and one never knows what might happen. I enjoy my work but it carries with it many responsibilities and I work hard. I have a tremendous number of banks under my supervision. I employ eight stenographers and two secretaries. One office is in the Washington Building, just across from the White House. If you have time while you are here, come down and I'll show you through the building, and also the Treasury Building.
“Of course the depression made a decided difference in our mode of living. We cut expenses down to a minimum and, if it had not been for Louise's resourcefulness, I don't know how we would have weathered it.
“It did not make any material difference in our friends or standing in the community. I had the confidence of every one and was able to retain it. I have some fine friends here in Washington. It is due to some political friends that I'm here. I appreciate them, too. There are so many Georgians here that we have never felt lonely.
“Politics is something that I feel very strongly but talk little. I think our present administration the finest and most far reaching we have ever had. A tremendous lot has been done to help the country recover from the depression, and here in Washington we feel very keenly any harsh criticism of those in power.
“It is a great thing to be here in the merry-go-round but sometimes I get tired of it all and wish I could get out in my garden back down in Georgia, and Louise says she will never cease to miss her cabbage patch.”
