Text

Hon. Woodrow Wilson
President -
Dear Sir -
I want to congratulate you and thank you for the way you handled that impudent negro - Trotter - yesterday. I think that means McAdoo Williams and Burleson are everlastingly right in separating the races. I will note that I was originally a Harmon man but am now a Wilson man first last and all the time.

Mr. Josephus Daniels can tell you who I am.

Very respectfully,
K W Weathers
