My dear Frank:

It was a great disappointment to me that you had to get away without my seeing you. My sudden illness with a savage cold knocked me out of a score of things that I wanted to do, and I particularly wanted to see you and tell you how deeply and sincerely I regretted the failure of the Senate to seat you. Until the last moment, I thought I had reasons to hope and believe that the decision would be favorable.
Of course, you are taking it like the true man you are and I want to express my admiration for the way in which you have behaved throughout.
It cheers me very much indeed to have your impression of the confidence of Congress in me and particularly as to the change of feeling on the part of Senator Bankhead. All of this strengthens and encourages me very much indeed.

Mrs. Wilson was very glad indeed to see you before you got away.
Woodrow Wilson

Mr. Frank P. Glass,
Birmingham, Alabama.
