Folder 1-13, Document 13c
Washington, D. C.
Department of State,
September 20, '11.
Dear Mr. Secretary:
I thought the letter to Hilles copied herewith was fair, unobjectionable and was certainly not asking much. I was astounded at the reply (copy herewith). It makes one sad sometimes to find a person one strives with all his heart to serve well actually disobliging instead of anxious to do one a good turn!
Yours very sincerely,
(signed) Huntington Wilson.
