Correspondence

Letter from William E. Fessant to Governor Lloyd C. Stark, discussing the obstacles he has encountered in obtaining work through the WPA due to his opposition for Pendergast and support for James Douglas. He believes his work, six hours a day at Wallace State Park, "is because the Pendergast gang wanted me where I could do the least amount of electioneering for Judge Douglas."
