Title: Letter to Kate Waller Barrett from Calvin Coolidge
Creator: Coolidge, Calivin
Date: 1924 October 23
Description: Letter from President Coolidge to Kate Waller Barrett regarding the Florence Crittenton Mission which managed homes for unwed mothers and prostitutes.

My dear Mrs. Barrett:
It is not easy to imagine a single reason why the work of the Florence Crittenton Mission should not have the most unqualified endorsement from every good citizen. I can think of a long list of the persuasive reasons why that endorsement should be given, and for myself I gladly extend it.
I wish you the fullest encouragement and cooperation in the splendid work you are carrying on.
Very truly yours,
Calvin Coolidge
