The White House.
My dear President,
May I thank you with very great sincerity for your extremely kind letter which has reached me here in safety. I really feel that it was very good of you in your weakness, and amidst the necessarily onerous responsibilities resting upon you, to take time to send me so sympathetic a message.
It was a keen disappointment to me that it was impossible to see you during my stay in Washington; but of course I thoroughly understood, apart from your illness, how difficult it would be. I heard that Mrs. Wilson was at several of the meetings, but had not the privilege of meeting her.
I am specially cheered by the assurance of her interest and of your own in the work we are doing in connection with these Bible Conferences. I count it a great privilege to be associated for a little while in this work. The keenness of the interest manifested in Washington, and here again in Columbus, is to my own heart one of the encouraging signs of the times in which we live.
Will you allow me, as an individual citizen of Great Britain, to say how I personally, and that in company with very many in my country, find intense reason for gratification in your Presidency of this bewilderingly great and growing nation. This I write for the relief of my own soul rather than under any impression that such a word can be of value to you. We do however thank God constantly for the strong and sane religious convictions which we feel at this time are inspiring those set in places of responsibility in the life of this people.
G. Campbell Morgan
