To Captain George E. Adamson

December 3, 1931 Fort Benning, Georgia

My dear Adamson:

I am inclosing herewith two certificates of 32d Degree Masonry, which the holders hope that General Pershing will honor with his signature. The two men are fine old soldiers, master sergeants, and they would be immensely proud to receive this favor from the General. At his convenience, would you be good enough to see if you can secure his signature?

As these documents are valuable, I have registered them to you, and I would appreciate the same in their return to me. Tell the General I am sorry to bother him with this, but I imagine that he will not mind doing it—in fact, he will rather like it.

I wrote him yesterday regarding Palmer’s book on Baker, and you might tell him I have already completed half of the first volume. The remainder will require much closer reading.

Faithfully yours,

G. C. Marshall, Jr.
