Vance, Editor of the Pictorial Review, a fashion magazine, declining an offer to become a contributor. In part: "I hope you will pardon the smile with which I read your letter of February 5th. I am greatly complimented that you should wish me to contribute... it would be unwise for me to make any promises, particularly in view of the fact that when I entered political life I arrested many literary plans which I now hope I may carry out after I am relieved of the duties of office..." Signed in full, "Woodrow Wilson."
