Folder 1-9, Document 3


Washington, D.C.


Valley Forge, Pa.,
12 July 1910.

Hon. Huntington Wilson,
Department of State,
Washington, D. C.

Dear Mr. Wilson:

The Secretary approves your recommendation that Mr. Clark be appointed Agent in the Alsop case. He also approves the suggestions about the personnel of the Solicitor's office except as to the appointment of Mr. Armes.

He says it is alright about Mr. Knapp.

In regard to the Honduras matter the Secretary does not think it is necessary to do anything further for the present.

As you request, I am sending you the papers in the Liberian matter. Also the memorandum [of Mr. Hales] in regard to Dr. Wright's compensation which has been approved with your suggestion as to date, and the memorandum about printing the letters of introduction which is not approved.

The Secretary is better but has to keep rather quiet.

With best wishes,

Sincerely yours,
