Washington, D.C.


March 13, 1909.

My dear Mr. Sherrill:

The Secretary of State desires me to say that there is a possibility of the President preferring to appoint you Minister to the Argentine Republic. Buenos Aires, as you know, is a delightful and important post, peculiarly important just now owing to the fact that next year the Pan American Congress will be held there. This intimation is quite tentative, but I would suggest that you drop me a line at once, indicating your feelings in the matter, whether you prefer the Argentine or Spain, or whether they would be equally agreeable to you. Subject, of course, to public interests, any preference on your part would doubtless be considered so far as possible.

I was glad to hear that you are to enter the service, - as a very well known Yale man, and as one of whom I have heard such pleasant things from my friend Herbert Parsons.

Yours very faithfully,


Charles H. Sherrill, Esquire, 30 Broad Street, New York City.
