November 8, 1972 The Honorable Wilmer Mizell House of Representatives Washington, D.C. Dear Wilmer: I congratulate you sincerely on your impressive victory. I have tried, as I know you have, to keep our contest on an impersonal basis, and I trust that the occasional points of tension that are inevitable in any race will not be construed by others to have impaired our friendship. While our differences in some policy matters are substantial, I think you will agree that we found some important points of agreement. I refer, for example, to the New River problem. I will be glad to help you carry out your pledge to prevent the construction of the dams. If there is any other undertaking affecting the common interests of the 5th District in which you think I might be helpful, I am at your command. With all good wishes, I am, Sincerely, Brooks Hays BH:ds
