In June Sargent is offered a knighthood
From Sargent to Prime Minster Henry Campbell Bannerman, 1907
The Rt. Honble.
Sir Henry Campbell Bannerman
[from] 31, Tite Street
Dear Sir Henry,
I am deeply appreciate your willingness to propose my name for the high honour to which you refer, but I hold it as one to which I have no right to aspire as I am not one of His Majesty's Subjects but an American Citizen.
With very great respect,
John S. Sargent
