Lot 113: TLS as president, one page, 7 x 8.75, White House letterhead, November 23, 1916. Letter to New York Supreme Court Judge Morgan J. O'Brien, in full: "It is with genuine regret that I find myself unable to accept the kind and interesting invitation conveyed by your letter of recent date inviting me to attend the annual meeting of the Association in New York City on January twelfth next. Forecasting my winter, I can see that it will be one of absolute absorption in duties which cannot be thrust aside or postponed, and I am denying myself every pleasure that would take me away from my desk. Will you not be kind enough to convey to all concerned my warm appreciation and sincere regret?" In fine condition, with torn punch holes to top edge.
