I did not receive the invitation, and have not yet received it. However, a lady called me to the telephone yesterday in regard to it and I requested her to thank the Overseas Writers for the invitation and to say that unfortunately, I was unable to accept. I now repeat the thanks for the compliment and the regret that I am unable to avail myself of it, and its pleasure. Sincerely," McKENNA, appointed by President McKinley, served on the Supreme Court from 1898-1925.
