Legation of the United States of America [embossed]
Oct. 7, 1914.
Major Charles Young,
I have the honor to acknowledge receipt of your
letter of even date asking me to use the offices of
the Department of State to locate the whereabouts of
your two children.
In reply I have to say that the following cable
has been sent the Department:
"Children of Major Young at school of Notre Dame
de la Compassion in Pieton, Belgium; boy Noel and
girl Marie. Legation urges Department to inquire of
their well being."
Hoping this is satisfactory.
I am, Sir,
Very respectfully yours,
Geo. W. Buckner.
