A new Secretary of Agriculture needs the understanding and good wishes of Americans in the cities as well as in the countryside. He especially needs the understanding of young people. Your letter gives me the opportunity to tell you several things which I hope you will remember and think about, even if you are among the youngest generation of Americans. ... The Constitution proved to be the basis of a workable and stable form of government which we have been able to gradually improve over the 193 years of our history. . Your generation is inheriting this record of imperfect but dramatic national progress. Furthermore, I am confident that your generation will see more progress in every area of human endeavor in the United States than has been accomplished in all our previous history. ..."
