Clarence Sears Kates, Esquire,
I confirm my great personal regret, expressed also by letters today to the Mayor and to Mr. Lippincott, that I myself cannot possibly have the honor to address the Philadelphia Society for Promoting Agriculture. If you desire it The Honorable Huntington Wilson, Assistant Secretary of State, will make a brief address on Agricultural Financial Credit and I suggest you correspond directly with him. Naturally, the whole Department is exceedingly busy just now and something might prevent Mr. Wilson's attendance, in which case another Department official would, if agreeable, read his address in his stead. He hopes and expects, however, to be able to go and prefers February twenty-eighth or twenty-seventh.
