You referred to me on August thirtieth a letter to Mrs. Wilson from Mrs. Blanche Hogle of Toledo, Ohio, with the request that I ask the Ohio State Council of Defense working through its county council, to assure to Mrs. Hogle and her mother fair treatment and the full protection to which dependents of our soldiers and sailors are entitled.
The Ohio State Council of Defense has now reported to me that the entire matter has been settled justly through the agency of the State Council Local Legal Committee, that the case has been dismissed without prejudice and at the plaintiff's cost, and that Mrs. Hogle and her mother will be given every protection should any further difficulties arise. Attached is a copy of the full report. I trust this will relieve you and Mrs. Wilson of the concern which you expressed in your letter of the thirtieth.Faithfully yours,
GROSVENOR B. Clarkson
Secretary of the Council.
The White House.
