April 3, 1909.
My dear Mr. Harris:
I beg to acknowledge your note of the 30th ultimo, enclosing your letter to The Nation on the subject of training for the consular service, which I have been interested in reading.
You are good enough to ask my ideas as to the permanency of this service as a career. I doubt whether I could indicate them with greater particularity than I did in an article which I recently wrote for the Yale News with a view to bringing to the attention of undergraduates the consular service as a career. As of possible interest to you I enclose herewith a copy of that article. The pamphlets published by the Department, copies of which I have the pleasure of sending you herewith, contain all that is officially given out on this general subject.
I am, my dear Sir,
W. V. Harris, Esquire,
8 Mercer Circle, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
