Mr. Uhl to Mr. Risley.
Washington, February 28, 1895.
Sir: I inclose for your information a copy of a letter dated the 18th instant, from Mrs. Josephine D. Peary, wife of Civil Engineer R. E. Peary, U. S. N., asking the Department to obtain permission for a scientific expedition to visit Greenland in July next to carry on explorations, and to aid Mr. Peary in returning to the United States with his party.
You are instructed to bring Mrs. Peary’s application to the attention of the Danish Government, and to request that the usual permission may be granted to the expedition in question. Any further particulars in regard to the subject which Mrs. Peary may be able to furnish will be promptly sent to you for communication to the Danish Government.
I am, etc.,
