In full: "I want you to know that I very deeply appreciate the cooperation which you have given me in the matter of investigating the qualifications of Mr. Richard Spencer for the appointment of First Assistant Commissioner of Patents. It occurred to me from the examination of his record that he would fit into this position, but I did not want to recommend his appointment to the President without having your opinion of it.
