Corresponds to:

Folder 1-8, Document 135


Washington, D.C.


June 22, 1909.

My dear Bowie:

From your letter I gather that you had a most satisfactory trip. It was good to have from you some news of old Tokyo.

The day before yesterday we had the pleasure of getting your brother, Dr. Bowie, to lunch with us. I presume he will be with you soon after you get these few lines - which cannot pretend to give news, but will serve to remind you that you are often in my mind. I feel that I have a grievance, however, in the fact that you passed New York without looking us up in Washington!

With the very best regards, in which my wife joins, I remain, always,

Very sincerely yours,


Henry P. Bowie, Esquire,
San Matio, California.
