Honorable Huntington Wilson,
First Assistant Secretary of State,
Washington, D.C.

My dear Mr. Wilson:-

I see by the public press that the Honorable Charles R. Crane of Chicago has been appointed Minister to China. It is stated that he is to be in New York to-morrow to confer with New York Bankers. If it is the Minister's intention to spend more than a day or so in New York at this time, I wonder whether you would be good enough to arrange an interview with him for me and thus offer an opportunity of presenting him a recital of the facts of our negotiations with the Chinese authorities, looking to the extension of trade in American school books with that country? If Mr. Crane is not remaining here long enough at the present time to accord me an interview, I could meet him in Washington if that would be more convenient. I would appreciate a line from you on this subject at your leisure.

Faithfully yours,
