Lot 63: TLS as president, two pages on two adjoining sheets, 7 x 8.75, White House letterhead, April 9, 1917. Letter to Reverend L. D. Wishard, in part: "Your letter…has brought back many memories to me…I do not think it would be wise for me to adopt your suggestion about promoting the effort to obtain an endowment for the colleges you speak of, strongly as my heart would dictate an acquiescence in it, because…it would be impossible after that to make distinction between one cause and another which would desire the same sort of encouragement and assistance." In fine condition, with a couple spots of light soiling. Provenance: The Everett Fisher Collection.
