Wilson Papers, Library of Congress, Library of Congress, Washington, District of Columbia


My dear Mr. President:

I respectfully ask you to see and to hear Commissioner VanKennan, and Mr. Lucey, of our State. They come to see you about a matter of much moment to your administration, and to mine. You can rely implicitly on just what they tell you. I am very anxious to have Mr. Lucey appointed United States District Attorney for the Northern District of New York. It will be in the interest of good government, and honest and decent administration. He is peculiarly qualified for the duties of the office by ability, by honesty, and by long experience. A more capable man could not be selected, and his appointment will be exceedingly gratifying to our friends. I commend Mr. Lucey to your favorable consideration, and hope you can spare the time to go over matters with these gentlemen regarding this whole situation.

With best wishes, believe me,
Very sincerely your friend,
Wm Sulzer
