My Dear Mrs. Young:-

		With ten thousand apologies for again disturbing 
you concerning our effort to conduct Honor Services over the remains 
of Colonel Young, I am enclosing you this message from the War Dep't. 
which has just this moment come into my hands.

		We are, as I have before stated, having the fin-
est cooperation from the many individuals and organizations ad[n]d the 
services promise to be very successful.  I have written for the 27th 
so as to allow for completion of plans and for the possible delay of 
the steamer.

		The sooner I am able to state a definite date 
the better it will be for the making of my program.

		I am asking that you return the enclosed letter 
from the War Dep't. as these letters are important to thecompleteness 
of my files.  Am also enclosing stamped envelope for return.

		For the success of our efforts and hoping for 
your good health, I am.

		Very truly yours,
				Wm Service Bell

				William Service Bell,
