Folder 1-8, Document 199


Washington, D.C.


October 2, 1909.

My dear Mr. Bliss:

Mr. Wilson asked me to send word to you that he would like to see you at the Department as soon as you have recovered from the operation, and he has suggested that it might be well for you to make reservations not only for the 16th of the month but also for the following steamer. He is himself at the Johns Hopkins University Hospital now, having undergone an operation yesterday to remove his appendix. As he was in excellent physical condition at the time, having quite recovered from his attack at the time of the operation, he expects to be back in Washington in ten days. We are now getting the best reports from him.

I assume you have received the Department's telegram granting the extension of time.

Hoping that I shall have the pleasure of seeing you again in Washington, and that you are having not too uncomfortable a sojourn at the hospital, I am

Very sincerely yours,


Secretary to Mr. Wilson.

Robert W. Bliss, Esquire,
6 East 65 Street,
New York City.
