My dear Mr. Wilson:
I beg to return the memorandum which you were kind enough to hand me some days ago, and which I have read with great interest. To what extent these suggestions may be practically availed of, I am, of course, not in a position to say. In fact, some of the suggestions appended to your memorandum appear to be quite radical. However, I hope in the near future to have an opportunity to talk with you about this whole situation, and suggest that you have the memorandum at hand at that time. I very much hope considerable improvement in immigration conditions may be affected by the mutual agreements of the several governments involved.
Hon. Huntington Wilson,
Assistant Secretary of State.
