The Assistant Secretary.
December 30, 1909., 190 .
Dear Mr. Wilson:
Senator Lodge, of Massachusetts, came to the Department this morning about 12:40 and after being informed that Mr. Knox was engaged with the Italian Ambassador inquired for you. The Messenger announced the Senator to me at once, and before the Senator had been waiting one minute I saw the Senator and tried to explain that you were engaged but would see him in not more than a minute. He said "I won't wait around for any Assistant Secretary, not for one moment" and shook his fist in my face. He then forcibly pushed me from him and said "Go and tell Mr. Wilson that". He then left the Department.
