STANFORD UNIVERSITY, CALIFORNIA.
November 25, 1912.
Let me acknowledge your kind letter of November 20th. I was very glad indeed to see your statement of your point of view. I can very easily understand how one might put up with the boisterousness of Mr. Roosevelt and with the very weak plank on Armament asking for more dreadnoughts, for the sake of Industrial Justice and other fine things promised in the Progressive platform.
We shall count you as one of us just the same and I trust that you will not shut us out of the fold of workers for industrial peace even though we find Mr. Wilson more "progressive" than Mr. Roosevelt, along the lines in which the word of the President may rule.
Very truly yours,
David Starr Jordan. [signed]
