Text

My dear Senator

Items of personal news seem for some reason to penetrate slowly to my office. I did not know until yesterday that you were ill. I am sincerely and deeply sorry. May I not convey to you my utmost sympathy and express the hope that you will take the best care of yourself? I am sure we shall all hope to see you out and feeling like yourself again very soon indeed.

Cordially and sincerely yours,
Woodrow Wilson


Hon. AO Bacon,
Washington, DC
