Mabel Thorp Boardman, American National Red Cross, William Howard Taft
The document is a carbon copy of a typed letter from the Assistant Secretary of State to Mabel Boardman concerning a circular about the Red Cross that will be distributed in the Department.
Francis Mairs Huntington Wilson
Folder 1-8, Document 155
June 28, 1909.
Dear Miss Boardman:
I am quite prepared to draft the circular to the diplomatic and consular officers on the Red Cross but I am waiting for a copy of the letter to the Governors of our States when the President shall have signed it. I thought that would be useful in the preparation of the circular and I write this to let you know the reason why I am delaying the circular.
Meanwhile, if you wish, I shall go ahead without the President's letter. Will you please let me know what you think about this and have sent me a copy of the letter to the Governors when it does get signed?
We are frightfully hot and busy here. I hope you are having a pleasant time and rest in the country.
Very sincerely yours,
Miss Mabel Boardman,
