Text

My dear Mr. Ford:

By direction of Secretary Redfield, I have to request that hereafter the word "Negro" (both singular and plural) be capitalized wherever it appears in the publications of the Department of Commerce. I shall appreciate it if you will give such instructions to compositors and proofreaders in your Office as will bring about this result.

Very truly yours,
(Signed) DAN C. VAUGHAN,
Chief, Division of Publications.

Hon. Cornelius Ford,
Public Printer,
Washington, D. C.
