President Wilson to the Secretary of State

Approve the message to Admiral Caperton except that I think it would be best, instead of saying that we did not wish the cession of Mole St. Nicholas, to retain the rest of the message as you have sent it to me and add that the Government of the United States would take up the question of the cession of the Mole later along with the other questions to be submitted to the reorganized Government with regard to its relations to the United States.

Woodrow Wilson
