August 9, 1916

My dear Mr. Secretary:

I am warmly obliged to you for your letter of October sixteenth and am sorry that I have not had an opportunity to acknowledge it sooner. Certainly the information it brings is delightfully encouraging and it so accurately corresponds with that I have learned from other sources that I cannot help believing that your conclusions are very near the truth indeed. I hope with all my heart that they are, for I think that the election of Mr. Hughes with the motley crowd that is behind him would be a national calamity.

With warmest regard,

Cordially and sincerely yours,

Woodrow Wilson
