Dear Mr. White:

I am very sorry that I can not be with you tomorrow morning at twelve o'clock. As an individual I should like to be present, but as a member of the delegation I feel that until this subject comes before us in the proper way, in a report of the Human Rights Commission or otherwise, I should not seem to be lining myself up in any particular way on any subject.

It isn't as though everyone did not know where I stand. It is just a matter of proper procedure.

Very sincerely yours,
