[Personal]

[April 2, 1912]

[Dear Wilson,]

[Senator Sutherland is very much interested in having George M. Hanson appointed to the consular service. He took the examination yesterday. The Senator says that Hanson has been with him as secretary for seven years and is a most capable and faithful man. I am very anxious to secure what the Senator wishes and I hope you will give your personal attention to this matter and do everything consistent with the parties interest to see that Hanson has a fair show.]

[Sincerely yours,]

[signature]

[There is another man from Utah, named Robinson, also capable. I have not the slightest objection to giving two appointments to Utah if the applicants are fit.]

Comments
