- Senator Lodge wishes to advise President Roosevelt regarding a matter brought to his attention by Senator George Hoar. He notes that suspensions of the law are possible, and while they always involve risk, this case seems to merit such a suspension. (He is most likely responding to Senator Hoar's telegrams to the President regarding the case of two children who arrived at Ellis Island with trachoma. The law would bar their entry. Hoar appeals for action to allow them to enter the country and be treated.)
