Dear Sirs:-
            My mother, Mrs. Phelps Stokes, has sent me the enclosed blank received from you, and has asked me to give you such information as seems to me desirable.  I cannot take the necessary time before leaving town on Friday to answer all of the questions, but as all of this information is available in easily accessible form, your investigators should have no difficulty in securing the desired information, and I shall be glad to check over their notes before the article is prepared for final printing. 
           I refer you for this information to the various editions of "Who's Who in New York", and "Who's Who in America", and to my father's own work, "Stokes Records" in four volumes, which can be consulted in most of the larger public libraries.
                 Yours very truly,[[underlined signature]] I.N. Phelps Stokes [[/underlined signature]]
