My dear Mr. Sherrill:
As I wired you, the port side is understood to be the more comfortable on account of the prevailing winds on the trip from Southampton to Buenos Aires by the Royal Mail. In making your arrangements I might suggest that you will find Mr. I. P. Roosa, United States Government Despatch Agency, No. 2 Rector Street, New York City, able to facilitate you in the matter of finding out rates, sailings, etc., both for your journey and for the shipment of your things.
You know, after you have been nominated, confirmed by the Senate, and commissioned by the President, the next step is to take the oath of office here, whereupon begin to run your thirty days' period for instructions, after which you are allowed forty-five days for the journey.
I am very glad you are going to Buenos Aires and look forward with much pleasure to seeing you again when you are in Washington.
Charles H. Sherrill, Esquire,
No. 30 Broad Street, New York City.
