My dear Friends:

I wish sincerely that it were possible for me to be with you this evening to aid in calling the attention of public-spirited men everywhere to the needs of Goucher College. I have in the past shown my confidence in the College in the most conclusive way, and I should be very glad, indeed, if any word of mine could fix the attention of liberal men upon the necessity of seeing that this institution shall not pass out of existence. It would, indeed, be an evidence that our great educational public does not fully understand its own interests if an institution which has served with such faithfulness not only, but with such distinction, in the cause of woman's education should be allowed to break up for the lack of money.
It gives me pleasure to join in uttering a very earnest call for liberal support, in the hope that the funds may be forthcoming, and forthcoming in liberal quantity.

Cordially and faithfully yours,
Woodrow Wilson
