Folder 1-8, Document 66


Washington, D.C.


April 21,1909.

Dear Dr. MacCauley:

My wife was laid up and quite miserable for a number of days and this is the reason why I could not arrange our meeting. As for myself, I was hard at it here uninterruptedly. A new Administration, with Congress in session, makes just the very busiest time one can have and in the present instance various important matters in our foreign relations added much to the impossibility of having a moment for one's private interests. I am awfully sorry to have had the misfortune to have seen so little of you during this visit, but I cannot help counting upon other meetings with you later on.

Meanwhile I remain, with warm regards,

Very sincerely yours,


Dr. Clay MacCauley,
249 South Sixteenth Street,
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
