My dear Admiral Stockton:
I beg leave to present to you Mr. John H. Gregory, Jr., of the diplomatic service, who is now attached to the Department of State, and who calls upon my behalf to ask you to do the Department the favor of delivering to our seventeen eligibles for the diplomatic service an informal talk on international law from the Navy point of view, or on the Maritime Conference.
Mr. Gregory will explain the reasons why your compliance will be an important service to the Department in its effort to improve the standard of preparation of secretaries sent out.
With many kind regards, and regretting to trouble you in such hot weather, I am, my dear Admiral.
Rear Admiral Charles H. Stockton, U.S.N.,
