My dear Governor:

There is such an excessive pressure upon me at the present time, with regard to important matters from which I cannot conscientiously turn away even for a moment, that I do not see how it would be possible for me to see Mr. VanKennan and Mr. Lucey at present, but I should be very glad to have them make an appointment with Mr. Tumulty or send me memoranda of any sort that they choose.
I suggest this course with the greatest reluctance, but I do not see anything else to do in the extraordinary circumstances of my present days.

Woodrow Wilson

Hon. William Sulzer,
Governor of New York.
