Dear Sir

In reply to your favor of Jan 14th 1916 — Will say The reason the of the long delay for the delivery of the Indian War Pictures was that I was in the west. But in December last I took the Reels my self to Washington. I called at Secretary Lanes [2] office. But failing to find him I called on Secretary Garrison [3] . And left the Reels or Films with his Secretary who promised to notify Secretary Lane that he had a set of the Reels or films for his department. If you will kindly communicate with with the Secretary to Secretary Garrison, I think you will find everything allright.

Very truly yours

Ans'd JAN 29 1916

W. F. Cody
The address above will reach me.
