To Major General Charles D. Herron

February 28, 1940 Radio [Washington, D.C.]

Planning to leave San Francisco Saturday March Second on China Clipper for Hawaii. Please hold in abeyance and tactfully discourage official social engagements pending my arrival. I expect to spend Monday to Wednesday being educated on Hawaiian defense conditions. Then confidentially I hope to get an unobtrusive rest with Mrs. Herron and you the first I will have had since the Fourth of July weekend and I need it.
