Dear Mr. Neeley:
My husband and I have long admired your splendid fight for the Cancer Research Bill, which, although it did not pass, resulted in larger appropriations by the National Cancer Institute for cancer research and control.
We are also very much interested in your fight against Senator Revercomb and are enclosing a contribution for your campaign.
We do hope to have the pleasure of visiting with you in Washington this winter and discussing other important noncontroversial pieces of health legislation, which you might be interested in sponsoring.
With all best wishes,
Yours,
(Mrs. Albert D. Lasker)
