Senator Richard P. Ernst,
United States Senate,
During last spring we made a survey of racial descent of members of the United States Senate. We have now finished this survey and have practically all the information. We have, however, failed to receive any return either from you or from your secretary. I trust that you will be interested enough in this to supply the data called for on the bottom of this letter and to return the sheet to my address.
This would be greatly appreciated.
[signed]H. H. Laughlin.
