COFFICE OF THE SECRETARY913-914 UNION TRUST BUILDINGWASHINGTON, D. C.July 27, 1910.Dr. William F Bade,c/o The Independent,New York City,Dear Dr. Bade:-Thanks for your kind letter of July 26th. I don't think for a moment that Mr, McFarland will think you attacked the San Franciscans too vigorously, for I know he feels strongly on the subject and it was in the belief that he would so cordially approve it that I sent on my proof slip to him.Thank you for interesting yourself in securing for me a few copies of this week's issue.No, I shall not be in Minneapolis, although I may get out to Milwaukee in September, but Mrs. Watrous will leave probably next week from Milwaukee and spend a month in St. Paul and Minneapolis and she will be delighted to see you while there. Her friends in Minneapolis have a little cottage quite a ways out from the city and on one of the main street car lines to Minnetonka. I will give you when she gets there her St. Paul address and her Minneapolis address in the hope that if you happen to be nearby you may be able to call on her.Sincerely yours, [ILLEGIBLE]06288


Washington, D. C.
