Letter to Marion Eppley form Arthur Capper, 1923
Mr. Marion Eppley,
National Navy Day Chairman,
528 Seventeenth Street, Northwest,
Washington, D. C.


Dear Mr. Eppley:


I was glad to receive your letter of September 18 with the accompanying literature inviting my attention to the fact that October 27 is the be celebrated as Navy Day. I shall make mention of the fact in the addresses I deliver on or near that date. As a nation we are proud of the Navy and its accomplishments. While I think it is a fine thing that our nation should take the lead in the movement to control navy armaments, it is of course important that our relative naval power should be maintained at the highest possible efficiency.


With kind regards, I am
Very respectfully,
Arthur Capper.
