Transcription

June 28, 1909.

Dear Miss Boardman:

I am quite prepared to draft the circular to the diplomatic and consular officers on the Red Cross but I am waiting for a copy of the letter to the Governors of our States when the President shall have signed it. I thought that would be useful in the preparation of the circular and I write this to let you know the reason why I am delaying the circular.

Meanwhile, if you wish, I shall go ahead without the President's letter. Will you please let me know what you think about this and have sent me a copy of the letter to the Governors when it does get signed?

We are frightfully hot and busy here. I hope you are having a pleasant time and rest in the country.

Very sincerely yours,

[signature]

Miss Mabel Boardman,
Manchester-by-the-Sea,
Massachusetts.
