To Major General Hunter Liggett

April 30, 1924 [Washington, D.C.]

My dear General Liggett:

I was very happy to receive your letter of April 22nd and am glad to know that the copies of the First Army Report reached you safely.

As you may have seen in the papers, I am relieved from duty here July 1st and assigned to the 15th Infantry in China. Mrs. Marshall, her mother and myself sail from New York on July 12th, and from San Francisco, August 1st. I am looking forward to seeing you there. I have been struggling to get this detail for the past year and a half and I am delighted that it is finally an accomplished fact, so far as the preliminary orders go.

With affectionate regards,

Faithfully yours,
