Corresponds to:

Folder 1-8, Document 58


Washington, D.C.


April 13, 1909.

My dear Mr. Buchanan:

I am glad to note from letter of the 12th instant that you are prepared to accept appointment as Agent in the United States-Venezuela arbitration at The Hague. If you will have a thorough talk with Mr. Dennis before your approaching departure for Europe and return to this country in August your absence will have no effect upon our desire to honor you with this appointment, thus gaining a representative so well qualified and so familiar with the business in hand. Therefore, there is no reason why you should not now send us your formal acceptance.

Looking forward with pleasure to seeing you when you are next in Washington, I remain, always,

Very sincerely yours,


The Honorable William I. Buchanan,
23 Wall Street,
New York City.
