>From the context, the only word that fits is "Legation" and so that word must be what the informant said, but there are a couple of extra letters in what the enumerator wrote. So my assumption is that the enumerator did not have the word "legation" in his vocabulary and thus wrote what he thought he heard.

Subject: [APG] Help reading occupation on Census
I am struggling reading the occupation of Ellen Ring on line 57 of page 15B, ED 312 on the 1920 census for Washington, DC. I get Secretary in the Chancery at the Danish _____ -- the fourth word is a mystery to me.
Thanks in advance for any help.
