A Clergyman Expresses Concerns about the New Deal (with text supports)

In September 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt sent a letter to clergymen across the United States, asking them whether conditions in their communities had improved since the start of the New Deal. This was one of over 100,000 responses he received. This letter was reproduced with all of the author's original spelling, syntax, and grammar.
