May 6, 1918

My dear Mr. Secretary:

Thank you very much for your letter to me about your interview with Wessrs. Wolley and Hale. I instinctively felt when they laid the mater before me that they were stating it a good deal too strongly and I entirely subscribe to the conclusions of your letter. I think that you have at every turn handled the matter just as well as it was possible to handle it, with a great deal of discretion and vision, and of course there was nothing in what Wolley and Hale said that involved any doubt on that point. They were merely misinformed as to the troubles that were occurring.

Cordially and sincerely yours,

Woodrow Wilson
