Woodrow Wilson to Newton D. Baker
Your note of yesterday has touched and moved me. I wonder if you know how genuinely and entirely I have trusted and believed in you and how happy I am that the trust and belief have been absolutely justified by the result. It has therefore cost me no effort to support you, and any help I have given is more than repaid by such generous confidence as you have in me.
Cordially and sincerely yours,
Hon. Newton D. Baker,
Secretary of War.
