President Wilson to the Secretary of State

My Dear Mr. Secretary: It seems to me that the importance of attempting a settlement in Mexico grows daily more pressing, and that you would therefore be justified in asking these gentlemen to come to Washington to confer with you, one by one or in groups, as you think wisest. They will be complimented, I am sure, and will enter into the spirit of the thing.

Faithfully Yours,

W. W.
