My dear Mr. Brown:
I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your note of the 7th instant, wherein you inquire whether it would be possible for the HERALD to arrange for its representative to see me with the minimum delay regarding matters as to which he may wish to make special inquiry. I am sorry to note your statement that members of the HERALD staff who visit the State Department report that they have been subjected to some embarrassment, for it has been my aim to arrange the giving out of such news as we have in the manner most convenient to all concerned.
The present plan is this. I receive the representative of the press at 10:30 a.m. surely, and at 3:30 in the afternoon. At these fixed hours I am always prepared to receive any special and individual inquiry immediately after the general meeting with the representatives of the press.
Henry S. Brown, Esquire,
Manager, The NEW YORK HERALD,
1502 11 Street, N. W.
