PEHR HOLMES
He signs a typed letter (1935), promising a constituent that he will strongly oppose the FDR-supported Wheeler-Rayburn Bill.
Typed Letter signed: "Pehr Holmes" as US Representative, 1 page, 8x10. Washington, D.C., 1935 June 20. On letterhead of the House Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce to Mrs. Wm. Woodward, Worcester, Massachusetts. In full: "Receipt is acknowledged of your letter of recent date protesting against the Wheeler-Rayburn Bills. As a member of the above Committee I am doing everything possible to have this legislation drastically modified, but I shall vote against it unless we can have the bill greatly changed. As you know, however, the President seems determined to have a bill put through in as nearly as possible the original form of the Wheeler Bill, which is very vicious legislation, and unfortunately he has a large Democratic majority which he can demand shall carry out his wishes, so that it is very possible the measure will be put through in spite of our opposition. At any rate, you may count on me to do what I can to protect the millions of investors who will suffer. Very truly yours". Pehr Holmes (1881-1952) emigrated from Sweden with his parents in 1886. Holmes became Mayor of Worcester, Massachusetts (1917-1919), a member of the Governor's Council (1925-1928) and a Republican Representative in the US Congress (1931-1947). Defeated for re-election in 1946, he returned to his electrotype business in Worcester. The Wheeler-Rayburn Bill, formally known as the Public Utility Holding Company Act, limited lobbying activity by utility companies. As Holmes feared, it became law later in 1935. Normal mailing fold creases. Lightly creased at top edge and corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
