The 28th President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson beat a field of candidates that included Republican incumbent William Howard Taft and former President Theodore Roosevelt to gain election to the White House as a Democrat in 1912. This 8.5” x 11” typed letter on White House stationary contains evidence of where it was folded to fit in an envelope and is addressed to a Mrs. Meredith of Washington D.C. in response to a suggestion in reference to an artist sketch. “I wish sincerely that I could say yes to the suggestion of your letter about Mrs. Sweeney, but really I know from experience that it is impossible to make any arrangements which would be at all suitable for Mrs. Sweeney’s making a sketch. I can only express my appreciation of your suggestion and my unaffected regret. Sincerely yours,” wrote Wilson, signing below in a golden hued ink. Beneath the letter is a framed and matted 6” x 9” photo of Wilson and a 3” x 5” black nameplate with silver engraving reading: Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924) Twenty Eighth President of the United States. The 16” x 34” complete display comes with a JSA LOA certification #X99017 and would make a handsome addition for the Presidential collector.
