With reference to the attached application form I should like to explain that Joffre David is a natural born citizen of this country: his birthplace being New Orleans, LA.

His father abandoned the family in Columbia, South America, several years ago and was last heard of in Central America.

Yours truly,

J. K. Knight

(Uncle)
