Just to keep the record straight I enclose here - with a copy of a letter recently received from Gilmore Clarke, Chairman of the Commission of Fine Arts, giving Eugene Savage's comments on the designs which covers the point of scale which I told you Eugene Savage had raised. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help along. I am looking forward to seeing the new cartoons. Let me know when you are coming down as I want to be sure to be in Washington when you are here. Cordially yours, Ned Bruce Chief of the Section of Fine Arts
