Washington, D.C.


June 28, 1909.

My dear Mr. Douglas:

I return herewith the pamphlet "What it is", etc., in re Philadelphia Commercial Museum with reference to your letter of June 10th. The matter of the Commercial Bureau, which seems to have tried to pose as being under Government patronage and which has, in fact, been given nothing more than the revocable privilege of putting its advertising material in consular offices - which is usually extended to any decent individual or company - , has received in the ordinary course the official attention which the well established practice of the Department along the lines of sound policy dictates.

With kind regards, I am, my dear Mr. Douglas,

Yours very sincerely,


R. D. Douglas, Esquire,
Care R. G. Dun and Company.
Broadway and Reade Street,
New York City

Enclosure, supra.
