President Wilson to the Secretary of State

My Dear Mr. Secretary: I have your letter of December twenty-sixth24 enclosing the letter from Mr. Lansing, which I herewith return.25

I hope you will exercise your own judgment entirely as to the method and subject matter of publicity in regard to the German protest and our reply. I agree with you that the essential matter is to get before the public the admission of the German Government with regard to the sale of munitions of war.

Cordially and faithfully yours,

Woodrow Wilson
