DAVID F. HOUSTON. TLS: "D.F. Houston" as Wilson's Secretary of Agriculture, 1p, 7x8¾. Washington, 1917 July 18. To President Clark F. Thwing, Western Reserve University, Adelbert College, Cleveland, Ohio. In part: "I should, of course, be glad to see Mr. Barber but it seems clear that I shall not be in a position to accept the courteous invitation. As you may imagine, I am overwhelmed with work here and the pressure seems to be increasing from day to day...I am sure you will understand the situation in which I find myself...." Houston served as Wilson's Secretary of Agriculture (1913-1920) and Treasury (1920-1921). Houston was understandably overwhelmed in the Department of Agriculture as a record number of agricultural laws were passed by Congress including the Farm Loan Act, the Warehouse Act and the Federal Aid Road Act. Lightly creased. Slightly soiled at blank areas. Fine condition.
