July 5, 1924.
My dear Dr. Crane:
I have been much impressed during the past three years with the wide-spread [sic] interest and cooperation in the educational movement for Better Homes in America. The home has been and ever must be a source of profound influence and inspiration in the lives of all citizens. It plays a chief role in the development of the children of our nation for stability and uprightness. Participation by communities in this campaign to raise the standards of the American home is therefore a substantial contribution to national well being.
I take great pleasure in sending to you and the Better Homes in America Committee for Kalamazoo my sincere congratulations for the notable contribution which you have made in the general campaign for Better Homes. The award of the first prize is indicative of the outstanding merit of the worthy enterprise in which the citizens of your community so loyally participated.
Very truly yours,
Calvin Coolidge [handwritten signature]
Dr. Caroline Bartlett Crane, 1425 Hillcrest Avenue, Kalamazoo, Mich.
