Hon. Huntington Wilson,
Washington, D. C.
My dear Mr. Wilson:-
I have been compelled to be out of town since I telephoned you last but there is no hurry anyway in reaching you.
I spent part of last Wednesday afternoon with President-elect Wilson in Trenton and explained to him your situation and he seemed to very much appreciate the motives which inspired the suggestions. He asked if you did go away if Mr. Adee would not be in a position to give all information. I pointed out the fact that I thought you were the only man in a position to do so and he said he would certainly arrange to get in touch with you some time prior to your intended departure and thanked me very much for the suggestions from you, which as I have already stated, he appreciated keenly.
Very sincerely yours,
