It remained for the Commission to make a selection from the list provided, and they did so. By unanimous vote, Daniel Chester French, having a studio near Stockbridge, Mass., was chosen. He promptly accepted the honor, and, in a conference with the Commission, suggested as collaborator, Mr. Henry Bacon of New York, the architect of the Lincoln Memorial at Washington. These names were at once presented to the Governor and Council as the choice of the Commission, and they were confirmed Aug. 10, 1921. The Commission learned that Mr. Bacon and Mr. French had been associated for twenty-five years in producing and giving an artistic setting to public monuments that the one or the other had contracted to erect. The statue of Lincoln within the memorial at Washington was the work of Mr. French. Mr. French approved the suggestion of the Commission that Mr. Bacon should accompany Mr. Robinson as adviser in the selection of the site near St. Mihiel, and the Governor and Council approved the rearrangement of the items in the budget to provide for his expenses. The chairman, the secretary and Mr. Bacon sailed for France August 17, and arrived in Paris August 24. With as little delay as possible, Mr. Robinson obtained an appointment with Ambassador Herrick, showed his credentials from the Governor of Massachusetts, and left with him a copy of the following letter: - Department of State, Washington, June 20, 1921. To the Diplomatic and Consular Officers of the United States of America. Gentlemen: - At the instance of the Honorable Calvin Coolidge, Vice-President of the United States, I take pleasure in introducing to you Mr. Walter A. Robinson of Arlington, Mass., chairman of the Memorial Commission for Massachusetts Dead of the World War in Foreign Countries, who is about to proceed abroad. I cordially bespeak for Mr. Robinson such courtesies and assistance as you may be able to render consistently with your official duties.
