Text

My dear Mr. Mitchel:

I am sure that Mr. House has already told you what my feelings are with regard to your resignation of the post of Collector of the Port, but I must not deny myself the pleasure of telling you how highly I appreciated your acceptance of the appointment and how much I have valued your services in the brief time that you have occupied the office.
I send this note merely as a personal message to interpret the routine letter of the Secretary of the Treasury, who, I am sure, feels as warmly and as cordially as I do.

Cordially and sincerely yours,
Woodrow Wilson


Hon. John Purroy Mitchel,
Collector of Customs,
Port of New York.
