August 17, 1910
The Honorable P. C. Knox,
Belgrade Lake, Maine.
Your telegraphing yesterday that you would not be accessible by mail until at Valley Forge about a week hence decided me not to send text now but to send it first to Bryce for tentative signature by him with understanding that if you approve you would sign later as of same date. Text will be ready this afternoon. Shall I send it as you telegraphically direct this morning? The two ways seem entirely satisfactory, but I think, perhaps, you will prefer alternative which leaves you entirely free from now until Valley Forge. All quiet here. Do not anticipate occasion to trouble you until you return Valley Forge. Please wire whether I shall send text to you five o'clock train today or first to Bryce.
