Typed letter signed re: “increase in the salaries of members of Congress”

In full: “Thank you for your letter opposing an increase in the salaries of members of Congress. I certainly believe that Congressional salaries should not be increased while our national expenditures and individual tax burdens are so high. I do feel, however, that the problem of finances in respect to those seeking public office--including not only salaries but also office expenses and the cost of campaigning—are most difficult problems which must be studied and adequately faced by our citizens and elected representatives. I shall vote against the proposed increase if it should come to the floor of the Senate.” Mailing folds, handling wear, else fine condition. Comes together with my book “John F.
