-To: Rt. Rev. Francis J. McConnell, President, Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America.
-Fine condition, light mailing folds, paperclip impression, type faded though signature bold and clear.
FDR writes: "Dear Bishop McConnell:-/ I have your letter of the 20th, and I really do not dare to tell you definitely about the 4th of March. The probability is, however, that because it is so near the close of the Session, that I will not be able to come. Be assured that if there is any possibility of it, I shall be with you./ Very sincerely yours..." McConnell had held this position for about a year at the time of this letter. A liberal Methodist, his appointment as president of this council, consisting of representatives from twenty-eight Protestant denominations, was somewhat controversial.
