Woodrow Wilson to Newton D. Baker
I would be very much obliged if you would have conveyed to the Executive Council of Porto Rico an expression of my very sincere gratification at the action taken by the Council in pledging to the administration the support and sympathy of the Council in the prosecution of the war. Such expressions of hearty fidelity are indeed delightful and encouraging. I am not sure whether I made a reply to the House of Delegates. If not, I would be very much obliged if a similar message might be transmitted to them.Cordially and sincerely yours,
Hon. Newton D. Baker,
Secretary of War.
