Scope & content

This collection consists of one letter written by Joseph Hodges Choate on January 31, 1915 to General Francis V. Greene (1850-1921), a United States Army officer, engineer, and historian, who was born in Rhode Island and resided in New York for most of his life. In this letter, Choate agrees with Greene’s historical review of the shifting relations between nations and how arbitration could have prevented past wars.
