Washington, D.C.


June 22, 1909.

My dear Mr. Sherrill:

I am very glad the private secretary question has worked out all right.

You must indeed have been rushed in Paris, but I am very glad you found time to write that interesting despatch about the manner in which the French Government is able to bring pressure upon foreign Governments which seek to float loans in France.

From tomorrow the new stationery for the diplomatic service and the Department will be put in use. I have no doubt it will gladden your heart, as it does mine. If you employed Wyon I am sure you will have got expert work on your invitations, and so forth. He did beautiful work for us, but it turned out that I had sent him the wrong model, so it had to be all done over again at Tiffany's, who, under very strong pressure, has turned out work equal in my opinion to any that could be done anywhere.

With renewed kind regards, I remain, my dear Mr. Sherrill,

Very sincerely yours,


Charles H. Sherrill, Esquire,
American Minister,
Buenos Aires.
