Transcription

June 4, 1909.

My dear Mr. Squiers:

In answer to your note of the 24th ultimo I should advise you to renew your application for leave to be effective at the earliest convenience of the Department. The reason it cannot now be unequivocally granted for July first is that leaves of absence are at present being generally held up lest they should interfere with transfers and changes in the diplomatic service which the President has under contemplation.

I regret to hear of Mrs. Squiers' illness and hope she may soon be better.

With kind regards, I am,

Yours sincerely,

[signature]

The Honorable H. G. Squiers,
American Minister,
Panama.
