April 18, 1906.
8:10 p.m.

To Funston, Commanding Dept. California,
San Francisco, Cal.

The Associated Press reports to me that you have charge of San Francisco, Oakland and the Bay. I wish that you would report to me at once what you have done, the measures you have taken, under what authority you are acting, how many people need your assistance and supplies, and that you will give passes to the Associated press representatives and those of other press associations. Wire as soon as possible.

(Signed) W. H Taft,
Secretary of War.
