The Fed[eralist]s objected violently against that part of the resolution which confides in the wisdom of the Executive, & proposes to wait the result of Negotiations.The genius of our Government refers to the intercourse with foreign nations to the executive; I know of no legislative act that could consitutionally be made before the result of negotiation is known but a declaration of war, & that would doubless be folly in the extreme at present...”

sx: ww: Woodrow Wilson Typed Letter Signed [American President]

Transcript:

Princeton, New Jersey 5 March, 1898. Mr. John S. Phillips, McClure’s Magazine, New York, My dear Mr. Phillips, I wish I could say at once that I would write the essay you want, and I assure you that I should esteem McClure’s as "proper an organ" as I could [issire]. That is not the trouble. The trouble is that I am not a ready writer, and that I simply have not the time for such an essay as I would be willing to have you accept. I have had your kind letter of last summer in mind ever since I replied to it; and I have a subject under pressure upon which I want to write you a paper, of the literary kind. But I must do first the necessary tasks of my profession, and I may in the meantime offer you an essay which is a careful by-product of my lecture work, but which is in no sense "timely". I have not the time or the readiness to be up-to-date, I am sorry to say. With sincerest appreciation of your kindness, Sincerely Yours, Woodrow Wilson
