Dear Sir:

Pursuant to your favor of the 12th I have been very glad to give the matter therein suggested my careful thought and have discussed it with the Director of the Census.

In order to carry into effect the changed organization which you suggest a change in the law will be necessary. It does not lie within the power of the Department to form the distinct division of which you speak unless so authorized by statute. I am very glad you are pleased with the Negro Bulletin which it has been our desire to make accurate and illuminating in its character.

Yours very truly,
William C. Redfield
Secretary.

Mr. William Jennifer,
Bureau of the Census,
Department of Commerce,
Washington, D. C.
