Corvallis, July 3, 1018. -
Mr. Fred A. Covey,
Hunts Ferry Warehouse Co.,
Dear Mr, Covey,
At this time I feel that it will
not be out of place to extend to
you my congratulations upon the
action which you have just tnken
tu completely free your warehouse
and elevator of destructive pests
before the new grain begins com
The cyanide fumigation which
you used is the most effective pro
cess which you could have employ
ed, and it should enable you to
start the season with a clean plant.
You and your firm are certainly
to be highly commended upon
your efforts to conserve foodstuffs
at this time when such material is
of such great importanceto i-he
nation. Therefore, your action,
undertaken as it was, not through
compulsion, but entirely upon
your own initiative, should be
regarded in the light of a patriotic
service to the country.
Very truly yours,
Fra.nk H. Lathrop.
