Corresponds to:

Folder 1-8, Document 193


Washington, D.C.


September 8, 1909.

My dear Mr. Wilson:

In compliance with your request, communicated by Tamura, I am sending you all mail of a personal character that has been received during your absence. Other letters have been received marked personal, but many of them have been entirely routine official business and have been attended to by the appropriate officials of the Department. Some, too, are not at all urgent, and can well await your return.

The enclosed postal notice from the American Express Company was received this morning, and I immediately telegraphed it to the agent at Bretton Woods to forward the package to you at Lenox.

Mr. C.C. Glover called this morning to say that Governor Harrick had requested him by long distance telephone to inform you of the death of General Corbin, and to say that Mrs. Corbin leaves New York at 3:25 today, bringing the body to Washington. Funeral arrangements have not yet been made.

Mr. Buchanan asked me to say that he and Mr. Jennings arrived this morning, and are discussing the Honduran loan with Mr. Adee.

I have been at the office every day since you left, and attended to whatever came in. There has, however, been nothing of great importance come to this office.

Trusting that you and Mrs. Wilson are deriving much pleasure and benefit from your vacation, I am, my dear Mr. Wilson,

Yours very respectfully,
