Transcription

June 7, 1909.

Dear Mr. Carpenter:

I enclose a telegram from the Ambassador at London. It seems there is one vacancy on the list of ladies to be presented at the drawing room of June eleventh. Will you be good enough to find out and let me know at your earliest convenience whether there is anyone now traveling in Europe whom we could reach by telegraph and whom the President or Mrs. Taft would probably like to have avail of this opportunity to be presented at the Court of Saint James?

Yours sincerely,

Huntington Wilson

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