LETTER. October 13, 1917

To Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt concerning the Woman Suffrage Campaign in New York State.

THE WHITE HOUSE, October 13, 1917. My Dear Mrs. Catt:

May I not express to you my very deep interest in the campaign in New York for the adoption of Woman Suffrage, and may I not say that I hope that no voter will be influenced in his decision with regard to this matter by anything which the so-called pickets may have done here in Washington? However justly they may have laid themselves open to serious criticism, their action represents, I am sure, so small a fraction of the women of the country who are urging the adoption of Woman Suffrage that it would be most unfair and argue a narrow view to allow their actions to prejudice the cause itself. I am very anxious to see the great State of New York set a great example in this matter.

Cordially and sincerely,

WOODROW WILSON.
