Washington, D.C.


August 6, 1909.

My dear Mr. Madden:

I shall certainly urge Mr. Rockhill to accept the invitation of the Illinois Manufacturers' Association but I know that he has made all arrangements to leave for his post August 14th, and that the circumstances make it impossible for him to remain in the United States until September, when the dinner is to occur. Mr. O'Brien, the Ambassador to Japan, whom I should hope to get you to be good enough to have invited, is also unfortunately leaving August 14th. I am glad Mr. Crane will get thoroughly in touch with the Association and I hope Messrs. Rockhill and O'Brien may have an opportunity to do so the next time they are home on leave of absence.

Yours very faithfully,


The Honorable Martin B. Madden, M.C.
Chicago, Illinois.
