Folder 1-8, Document 70


Washington, D.C.


April 22, 1909.

My dear Bartleman:

You are the most thoughtful man I ever knew. I was amazed to receive those little H.W.'s so thoughtlessly cast aside at your house in Madrid.

It is delightful to hear that you have entirely satisfactory offices and I am looking forward to seeing photographs of them.

I have no special news, and could not take the time to write it if I had, such is the present pressure.

I had some long conversations with Mr. Sherrill, our new Minister to the Argentine, just before his departure. I hope you and he will work together well. You should be able to give him many valuable suggestions, owing to your knowledge of Latin America. In him I am sure you will find a keen and energetic man.

With the kindest regards from my wife and myself to Mrs. Bartleman, your aunt and the children, I remain, always,

Yours sincerely,


Richard M. Bartleman, Esquire,
American Consul General,
Buenos Aires.
