Letter from F.D. Roosevelt, Assistant Secretary of the Navy in Washington, D.C., to Mrs. H.C. Semple, in Montgomery, Alabama.
In the letter Roosevelt thanks Mrs. Semple for her "prompt and patriotic response to the NAVY's call for binoculars, telescopes, and spy-glasses." The Navy will attempt to return the items at the end of the war, "when it hoped that you will feel compensated for any evidence of wear, by the knowledge that you have supplied 'Eyes for the NAVY' during a very trying period."
