My dear Mr. Summerlin (1),
I send herewith an official letter addressed to the Secretary of State, requesting that Mr. Louis Renault be received, if possible, during his visit in Washington, by the President of the United States. Mr. Louis Renault is one of the leading French industrialists and Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour.
I should appreciate very much if you would take care of this matter personally, so that Mr. Renault will be granted the interview he is seeking.
Mr. George T. Summerlin
Chief of the Protocol Division
Department of State
(1) George Thomas Summerlin (1872-1947), diplomate, ancien capitaine de cavalerie dans l’US Army, est le chef du protocole de la présidence des Etats-Unis.
