In full: "I am taking the 6:45 train from New York Friday evening, arriving in Cleveland at 8:35 Saturday morning. I have written Dean Dunmore that I should be glad to talk to the Law School students informally on Saturday morning. I must return to New York on the train leaving Cleveland at 11:30 p.m. Saturday night, and I should appreciate it very much if you would be good enough to secure for me a lower berth on that train. Looking forward to the pleasure of seeing you on Saturday, I am, Faithfully yours". George W. Wickersham (1858-1936), a prominent corporation lawyer was U.S. Attorney General (1909-1913) under President Taft. He successfully prosecuted many corporations under the Sherman Antitrust Act.
