Letter sent to Senator Theodore G Bilbo from Floyd Herrington from BelPine Farms, Braxton, Mississippi,<br />
<br />
February 12, 1946<br />
<br />
Senator Theodore G. Bilbo,<br />
Senate office building,<br />
Washington DC,<br />
<br />
My dear Senator,<br />
<br />
Enclosed is my check for $100 to help out on your coming campaign. Also, it is in appreciation of your efforts to defeat Roosevelt’s FEPC measure, a sorry piece of cheap political double-crossing that stinks.<br />
<br />
Would like to suggest and recommend that when the bill comes up to make Roosevelt’s birthday a national holiday that it be amended so as to make two holidays -  one for the day of his birth, the other for the day of his death. That would give everybody a chance to celebrate. I regard Roosevelt’s birthday as the blackest day in American history.<br />
<br />
Anybody who can aggravate, exasperate and irritate those New York pinks, reds, and blacks as you have so well and capably done ought to be stationed in Washington permanently, and without the bother of an occasional election.<br />
<br />
Yours very truly,<br />
<br />
Floyd Herrington<br />
<br />
CC mr. RG Wooten Hattiesburg, Mississippi
