Folder 1-8, Document 150


Washington, D.C.


June 22, 1909.

My dear Mr. Dyer:

I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of June 12th, wherein, after frankly giving some sketch of your very successful career you mention your inclination to enter the public service and particularly in the office of Register of the Treasury.

Much as I should like to serve you I feel that I am not in a position to do anything worth mentioning. Of course, I know Mr. MacVeagh and Mr. Norton quite well, and I should be most happy to talk to each of them with a view to adding what little weight I could with propriety and may be able to add to what may be done by them.

I beg you to be sure of my cordial good wishes in the matter and I hope you will readily understand that I am circumscribed by the inter-departmental proprieties and by not being actually in a position to wield any influence in a matter like the one in which you are interested.

With many good wishes and assurances of cordial esteem, I remain, my dear Mr. Dyer,

Very sincerely yours,


D. B. Dyer, Esquire,
304 Massachusetts Building,
Kansas City, Kansas.
