My dear Mr. Swayne: Your telegram of the 5th, urging a survey at Hickman with a view to se curing federal assistance in the con struction of a levee there to protect the city against future floods, was prompt ly received. I Immediately took the matter ud with the Chief of Engineers of the War Department, and he advised that Con gressional action and Departmental ac tion here were unnecessary, in view of the fact that under the Flood Control Act, the Mississippi River Commission has full authority in such matters with in the limit of their appropriation. meter the Flood Act. passed several years ago, the Commission has com plete control of the construction of levees on the Mississippi river, and does not have to secure authority from Congress for each specific project that il undertakes. The only limit it has is the appropriation which Congress has made available. In view of this, it seems the best thing is to lay the matter before the Commission, ask for a survey at the earliest possible date, and present them the facts, which in my opinion ought to justify favorable action on their part. I am writing to the Commission my self, calling their attention to the Hick man situation, and asking them to pro vide for an early survey looking to the construction of such a levee as you sug gest. I shall le glad to render any as sistance that I can to the people there In securing favorable action by the Commission, and I assure you that whatever I can do will be done with pleasure. With kindest regard, and assuring you of my desire to serve you in any way possible, I am, . Sincerely yours, ALB EN W.
