My dear Heath:-

Your letter of the twenty-first came in due course of mail and I have read it with growing appreciation of what you are doing and of the value of what you are telling me from time to time.

Apparently it would be literally impossible for me to make a series of speeches in Virginia, as Mr. Harris so kindly suggests, though I hope it might be possible some time during the legislative session to make one. I do not know what to say about your suggestion that the Legislature of the State invite me. You are in a better position to judge of the wisdom of that than I am.

The impression of your letter with mine appended seems to have been excellent and the men at my headquarters in New York are planning to send out a great lot of them through the South.

In haste,

Faithfully yours,
Woodrow Wilson
