Frank Lowell, Vice President, Saco-Lowell Shops, Boston, Massachusetts. In full: "Dear Frank: This will introduce Chapman Revercomb of Charleston, West Virginia, an old friend of mine from my Senate days in 1944. I need not remind you that Chappie was a real Senator, while I got mine the easy way. Chappie wants to talk to you about a Saco-Lowell matter and I shall much appreciate it if you will listen to his story and naturally, other things being equal, if you could do what he wants, that too will be pleasing. I hope you're well and that you are keeping the home fires burning in good order. Give my best to my friends at Saco-Lowell and at Atlas."
