Woodrow Wilson Papers

Associate Justice Day, of the Supreme Court, to President Wilson

My Dear Mr. President: I am deeply appreciative of the honor which you have conferred upon me in the offer of a place upon the Peace Commission.

I wish it were practicable for me to accept this opportunity for service. I am, however reluctantly, constrained to forego this privilege.

Wishing you continued success in the great work before you, I am, with high regard,

Sincerely yours,

William R. Day
