It has indeed been a great honor to have you feel that I am fitted for the great office of President. The question as to who wins in these contests is to me of less importance than that we keep faith in the great issues before us. We shall have years of great trial in the solution of most difficult questions and, although we have not had our own way as to the tools for their solution, we have no less obligation to stand vigorously for the right handling of these issues. With my deepest appreciation of your friendship..."Hoover's work with European relief efforts in the wake of the destruction of the First World War propelled him into the national spotlight. The next year, Warren Harding appointed Hoover Secretary of Commerce, a post he held until 1928 when he resigned to run for President.
