My dear Doctor Owens:
I am extremely sorry to say that it becomes more and more evident as the time approaches that it will not be possible for me to leave Washington to attend the Southern Commerical Congress, though I had earnestly desired to do so. Every day makes it more clear to me than it was the day before that my duty is to remain uninterruptedly here, or at most be absent a very few hours at a time.I need not tell you how reluctantly I have come to this conclusion, but there is no escape from it.
Please express to all concerned my warm appreciation of their generous insistence on this trip and my very great regret.

Cordially and sincerely yours,
Woodrow Wilson
