Additional Details

"In pursuance of the request of the respective Presidents of the Universal Exposition, St. Louis, and of the American Bar Association, that the President of the United States should designate a certain number of delegates to the Universal Congress of Lawyers and Jurists to be held at St. Louis in September, 1904, you are hereby designated a delegate on behalf of the United States to the said Congress."
As noted in a contemporary review of the Official Report of the Universal Congress of Lawyers and Jurists (1905), the meeting "was timely, as a more or less well defined sentiment is discernible among those attentive to problems of international jurisprudence, in favor of a closer bond between the national systems for the administration of private justice."
