Hamilton Wright, Esquire,
Washington, D.C.

Sir:

I have to confirm the communication which Mr. Adee addressed to you September 21st. In apprising you of the fact of the exhaustion of the appropriation under which you were employed by the Department, I have, at the same time, to add that conditions make it necessary to request you this morning to vacate your quarters in the Department. It is, of course, expected that you will leave on file in the Department all materials and records of your official work in connection with the Opium Conference and work connected therewith.

With renewed appreciation of the efficiency of your services, which were definitively terminated with the exhaustion of the fund, I am, Sir,

Your obedient servant,

[signature]

Acting Secretary of State.
