Letters Americans write to presidents tell a great deal about the character of the U.S. In a studio interview, Mr. Carroll talked about the book he edited Letters from a Nation. He noted that many of the topics and advice in the letters remained surprisingly similar over the years. In an interview outside the White House, Mr. Burkhardt talked about the ten thousand letters President Clinton receives each day and how they are answered. One auxiliary mailroom for the White House was shown. It is located at the U.S. Soldiers' and Airmen’s Home and is manned by volunteers. Mr. Woods explained the procedures for opening and sorting mail for the president. close
