Corresponds to:

Folder 1-10, Document 16


Washington, D.C.


February 2, 1910.

My dear Dr. Rowe:

In the absence of Mr. Huntington Wilson, I write in acknowledgement of the receipt of your letter of yesterday regarding your desire that Professor Chester Lloyd Jones become thoroughly acquainted with the new organization of the Department, in connection with his course on "Diplomatic Forms and Procedure" and inquiring whether it can be arranged to give him "the necessary facilities to become familiar with the work of the various bureaux", and further stating that if such facilities can be extended to Professor Jones he will come to this city Friday next.

Exactly what facilities can be extended to Professor Jones I do not know. I am sure, however, that if he calls at the Department all possible aid to his work will be extended him and that he will be furnished with the fullest information it is found practicable to give him.

Yours very faithfully,


Private Secretary

Dr. L. S. Rowe.
The University of Pennsylvania.
