President Wilson to the Secretary of State

My Dear Mr. Secretary: I am concerned, as you are, about so much of the enclosed as has not already been satisfactorily dealt with, and I write very respectfully to suggest that it would be very well if you yourself were to seek an opportunity to present to the military committees of the two Houses the pressing necessity and importance of the amendment to the draft act to which you have referred. I have very little doubt that they would be glad to yield to your representations.

Cordially and sincerely yours,

Woodrow Wilson
