To the Commanding General Fort Knox, Kentucky

April 8, 1941 [Washington, D.C.]


I am planning to leave here about three P.M. today for Fort Knox and to leave Knox about eleven A.M. tomorrow. It may be that a White House meeting will prevent the trip but I will radio you later. Request no publicity no honors no ceremony no change in schedule no party. Acknowledge.
