We hold the committee records of the U.S. House and Senate. Constituent correspondence is generally considered a personal record of a member of Congress and not a committee record. In some instances, letters to a committee Chairman related to legislation can be found in our holdings. If you believe the letter from your great-grandmother was sent to express her opinion on a piece of legislation, please contact our office at email@example.com
Personal papers of members of Congress are located in repositories across the country. I suggest searching the Biographical Directory of the U.S. Congress to locate a repository that holds the papers of Henry St. George Tucker.
Hope this was helpful!
Thank you! The letter doesn't reference any legislation, so I will try to see if there's a repository for his papers. I appreciate the help.

Dear Ms. Pittman,
If your great grandmother was employed by the Census Bureau it is possible there is reference to the job related issue in her Official Personnel Folder. You may request this record from the National Archives in St. Louis by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
