Message to the Daily News of St. Thomas on Conditions in the Virgin Islands.
December 13, 1932

[Released December 13, 1932. Dated December 3, 1932]

My dear Mr. Jarvis:

This will acknowledge and thank you for your letter of November 12, 1932. I am grateful for the expressions of good will which it contained.

I have a profound interest in the welfare of the Virgin Islands and sincerely hope that conditions may improve. The reports of Governor Pearson indicate an increasing determination on the part of the people of the islands to help themselves and cooperate with the Federal government in its efforts to carry out the rehabilitation program whichhas been adopted by Congress and is now under way. Only through such spirit of self-help and cooperation can permanent improvement be achieved. The best citizens of any community are those who strive to make themselves economically independent and at the same time are interested in the improvement of conditions generally.
Yours faithfully,
HERBERT HOOVER

[Mr. J. Antonio Jarvis, Editor, The Daily News, St. Thomas, Virgin Islands]

NOTE: Paul M. Pearson was Governor of the Virgin Islands.
