Woodrow Wilson to Newton D. Baker
I am very glad to have your letter about Kent Island. It is, of course, a most unpleasant and ungracious thing to have to do anything that will disturb people in their homes, but I am convinced you are right in the choice and I will be glad to do anything that I can to help the project along.
Cordially and sincerely yours,
Hon. Newton D. Baker,
Secretary of War.
