Folder 1-8, Document 34


Washington, D.C.


March 20, 1909.

My dear Cooke:

Thanks to you I duly received the ticket for the Yale dinner in honor of the President. I am exceedingly mortified that after all the trouble you so very kindly took I was not present. Up to the last minute I hoped to take the train for New York, but unforeseen work turned up up here and made it quite impossible. I did not give it up until it was too late to send you word.

Please accept my apologies and my renewed thanks for your kindness in getting me the opportunity to be at the dinner, which I hear was quite fine and interesting.

I suppose I shall be notified what I owe and to whom to send my cheque.

With kind regards and hoping to see you some day in New York, I remain, always,

Yours sincerely,


William G. Cooke, Esquire,
No. 82 Wall Street, New York City.
