Dear Mr. O'Brien:
I was ill, I think, when your telegram came, but I know that you have now been wired to come to the Department whenever you yourself choose.
We are all frightfully busy here these closing days of Congress, but one has also visions of a holiday thereafter. My own plans are, however, quite vague. In any case I shall hope to see you when you come East.
The little box of jade is in the hands of Mr. Morrison, Chief of the Bureau of Accounts, to whom I have also turned over the blank draft and Miller's letter about the contingent fund. Please see Mr. Morrison about these things when you come?
With many kind regards, and the hope that you are enjoying your leave, I remain, always,
Very sincerely yours,
The Honorable T. J. O'Brien,
Grand Rapids, Michigan.
