Mr. C. S. Walters, Commissioner of Income Tax, and Mr. C. F. Elliott, Counsel of the Department of National Revenue, are prepared to come to Washington for this discussion on July 30th or as soon thereafter as may be convenient. I shall be glad if you will be good enough to inform me at an early [Page 4] date whether the suggestion that such a discussion should take place meets with the approval of the competent authorities of the Government of the United States, and, if so, whether the date proposed will be suitable.

I have [etc.]

H. H. Wrong
