Folder 1-10, Document 31


Valley Forge, PA


Valley Forge, Pa.,
29 July 1910.

My dear Mr. Wilson:

The Secretary to-day received a letter from Mr. Combs, our Minister to Peru, in which he said that he was going to ask for leave next March and then resign to take effect at the expiration of his leave. The Secretary is going to speak to the President about it so it will not be necessary for the present at least to inform him that it had been determined to ask him for his resignation the first of January.

I enclose herewith the list of changes in the consular service with the Secretary's approval endorsed thereon; a letter from Representative Smith with instructions written on the bottom of it and the corrected copy of the proposed interview in the Charlton case.

The Secretary called my attention to the fact that when your letter arrived this morning it was wide open but fortunately none of the enclosures had dropped out as far as we could tell. The envelope looked as though it had not been sealed at all. Doubtless an oversight.

Very sincerely yours,
