HENRY CABOT LODGE WRITES ABOUT A BILL COMING BEFORE CONGRESS FOR:  “THE PROPOSED INCREASE IN COMPENSATION FOR POSTAL EMPLOYEES”

LODGE, HENRY CABOT.  (1850-1924). American statesman.  Typed Letter Signed, “H.C. Lodge”, on imprinted United States Senate, Committee on Foreign Relations letterhead.  One full page, quarto.  May 26, 1920. To “E.E. Gaylord, Esq. High School, Beverly, Mass. At the top left of the letter Lodge has typed “Personal”.  Very fine condition.  Lodge writes:

 “My Dear Mr. Gaylord: I have received your two letters of the 24th and entirely agree with what you say about the proposed increase in compensation for postal employees. The matter has been thoroughly gone into by a Congressional Commission, who are now at work on their report, and I trust it will be submitted in the near future, but of course nothing can be done until it is laid before us. You may rest assured that I shall do all that I can to expedite favorable action by the Senate when a bill providing increased pay is introduced. I have seen the letter published by Mr. Lloyd stating that I was understood to be in favor of the Mason Resolution, but that report is entirely without foundation. I have not stated my position publicly upon it to anyone, but I fully appreciate the force of all you say and I am personally opposed to its passage, It has not yet come to the Senate or in fact been acted upon by the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House. Very truly yours, H.C. Lodge”
