Washington. D. C May 6 J 1922.
Ho. T. T. Swayne. Mayor.
Hickman. Ky.
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
With kindest regard, and assuring
you of my desire to serve you in any
way possible, I am,
