This letter from Edna and Bill Heim was sent to Clarice Snoddy, a resident of Topeka. The Heims were caring for Snoddy's farm in Smith County and thus remained in close contact. Mrs. Heim describes the condition of the wheat crop, which has suffered during the drought and also expresses her distaste for relief programs. According to Mrs. Heim, the only people who receive relief are those who have not "helped themselves."

Creator: Heim, Edna

Since there are few selections from personal correspondence, this letter (and other letters from the Heims) can flesh out other sources that talk about relief programs and agriculture during the Dust Bowl. It also works with the other selections from the Clarice Snoddy collection.
