A Citizen Reports How the New Deal Has Impacted His Life (with text supports)

This letter was written to FDR after his Fireside Chat radio broadcast of June 28, 1934, in which he explained the "Three R's" of the New Deal: relief, recovery, and reform. While economic data showed that the nation was beginning to recover from the worst of the Depression, FDR also asked his listeners to answer four questions to determine if they personally were experiencing recovery. This letter was reproduced with all of the author's original spelling, syntax, and grammar.
