Mr. F. Takano,

Your favor of the 26th advising me that you are called home suddenly, and desire to prosecute the work of organization among your fellow workers as soon as practicable, came duly to hand.
In reply let me say that if you can call here Saturday about 3:00 O'clock or else Tuesday about 5:30 I shall be pleased to issue you a commission as general organizer for the A. F. of L. and provide you with such documents as may be necessary to carry on the work to a successful issue.
With kind wishes, and hoping to meet you upon either of the days mentioned, I am,
Samuel Gompers President
