Paris Peace Conf. 185.161/7

President Wilson to the Secretary of State

My Dear Mr. Secretary: I entirely agree, and I believe you do, with the judgment expressed by Mr. Gompers in the enclosed letter.1 Would it not be possible for you to have frank conversation with the French authorities and representatives of the English Government in order to straighten this matter out? The only wise and prudent course, indeed the only expedient course, is to allow these people to hold their sessions when and where they will and I am clear in the judgment that if they are forced to sit in a neutral country their discussions and conclusions will certainly be dominated by dangerous radical elements.

Faithfully yours,

Woodrow Wilson
  1. Supra.
