Woodrow Wilson Papers

The Secretary of Labor ( Wilson ) to President Wilson

My Dear Mr. President: I am inclosing herewith letter31 just received from Mr. Frank P. Walsh,32 urging the naming of Mr. Gompers as a member of the Peace Commission.

Because of the high esteem in which Mr. Walsh is held by the wage-workers of the country and his close contact with their general sentiment, I feel that you ought to have the benefit of his judgment before arriving at your conclusions.

Faithfully yours,

W. B. Wilson
