My dear Miss Addams:
Of course, I will see Miss Balch very gladly. I did not know that she was in this country.
As I write, I am off for a very much needed absence from Washington for the [weekend], but just so soon as I return to Washington, on Monday morning, I will search my calendar for the earliest possible hour at which I may see Miss Balch and will let her know at the address you give.
I warmly appreciate your approval of my Mexican policy, though the plot thickens as we go.
Cordially and sincerely yours,
Woodrow Wilson [signed]
