Transcription

June 29, 1909.

My dear Mr. Carpenter:

The seventeen eligibles for appointment to secretaryships in the diplomatic service will complete their course of instruction about July third. I think it would have an excellent effect upon them and would be much appreciated if they could, before leaving Washington, have the honor of being presented to the President in the more formal way in the East Room. I sincerely hope that the President may be pleased to accord them this privilege.

Will you be good enough to ascertain and inform me of his pleasure in the matter?

I am, my dear Mr. Carpenter,

Yours sincerely,

[signature]

Fred W. Carpenter, Esquire,
Secretary to the President,
The White House.
