Diary of Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels
1917 SUNDAY 10 JUNE
Slept very late & then went to Navy Department to catch up with correspondence that had piled up & to sign Saturday’s mail. First time I had done regular work on Sunday. . . .
Talked with Ralph Earl about Freylinghusens letter (anonymous) about fuses. Some one at Indian Head or Washington has been giving out letters & seems to be working for some fuse concern- Also about the Raleigh Iron Works, thinking to injure me- F_ is two faced. . . .
Long talk with Braisted about what we were doing to preserve health of men in Navy
