- Nicholas Murray Butler writes to President Roosevelt about the likely selection of Joseph Bucklin Bishop over Mr. Parsons to head the Panama Canal Commission. Butler thinks Bishop is the right man for the job and explains why this appointment would look better than if Roosevelt put Bishop in a government position elsewhere. Butler also mentions that Mr. Hendricks and Mr. Odell are seeking positions in various committees.
