President Wilson to the Secretary of State

My Dear Mr. Secretary: I am glad you had this talk with the ex-President and formed a favourable impression of him. His explanation of the revolt is just what had formed in my own mind out of such information as had reached us.

I will be willing to see him, of course, as you request. It will add nothing to what we already know, but it may make an impression in certain quarters which it is desirable to make.

Faithfully Yours,

W. W.
