On January 10th the Washington correspondent of the New York World, Mr. Louis Seibold, published a letter written by Mr. Wilson as President-elect to Representative A. Mitchell Palmer. The letter explains Mr. Wilson’s objections to the so-called Bryan plan for limiting the President’s tenure to a single term of office. The letter was confidential at the time it was written, but its publication now is not an “exposé.” The New York World is perhaps the leading Wilson paper in the East, and we may assume that the administration allowed Mr. Seibold to print it. As a political move it is obviously intended to check any Democratic opposition which might crystallize around the “one-term” plank of the Baltimore platform.
