Text

My Dear Mr. President

I take the liberty of submitting a memorandum on Mexico. It is a matter of such grave importance that I am sure you will pardon me for offering an outline of a plan which I believe we could defend before the public. I can not say how the plan would be received but no one else can tell. It is easier to decide that a thing is right than to decide upon its reception. We can not tell until we try & I am willing to try anything that I believe to be right. Will see you next Friday or Saturday according to your convenience.

With assurances, etc I am my dear Mr. President
Yours truly
