Mr. Woodrow Wilson,
Pres. of U.S.,
Washington, D.C.

My dear Sir,-

As a warm and staunch friend and supporter of yours, I am assuming the liberty of enclosing a "self-explanatory" clipping.

If you will only send the illustrious "Trotter" down here, I'll promise you he will receive a very warm reception.

Believe me,
Yours most obediently,
Edw. J. Mair.

N.B. Enclosed find folder of our little city.
