Woodrow Wilson writes to Richard Heath Dabney, regarding the discharge of Andrew A. Hawkins from the service.
My dear Heath:
Along with your letter of June twenty-first about Andrew A. Hawkins came a note to me from the Secretary of the Navy in which he says:I suppose that ends the matter in strict conformity with the regulations and interests of the service. I am sorry to find the fellow is not all that he ought to be, but probably he is a good riddance!
