Letter from John Grimes Walker to John R. Hudson

Description:

The Isthmian Canal Commission will not provide transportation for employees who resign or return home for personal reasons. Many employees only last a short time and then want to return home. It would be "unjust" for the government to have to cover these expenses and such generosity would be abused. John R. Hudson, Jr. resigned on August 3 and will not receive salary or expenses after that date.
