My dear Mr. Scott:

I am very much obliged to you for your letter of the seventeenth of November. Indeed, I always read your letters with genuine interest and pleasure. My heart goes out to you and your comrades in the noble work you are doing, and I have this to ask of you: If in the course of your contact with affairs in China you see anything that this Government is comitting to do or is doing amiss, I would be very much obliged to you for any intimation of it. I am sure also that you can approach the new Minister to China about matters of this sort with the utmost freedom and the confidence that he will understand and sympathize.

With a hearty Godspeed for the New Year,
Woodrow Wilson

Rev. C. E. Scott,
Tsingtan, China.
