TLS as president, one page, 7 x 8.75, White House letterhead, July 12, 1919. Letter to Hon. Martin F. Ansel, the former governor of South Carolina. In full: “It was very gratifying to get your friendly letter of July 9th, and I thank you for it with all my heart. We will indeed now pull all together for the ratification of the Peace Treaty and the League of Nations, and I think the pull will be irresistible.” In very good to fine condition, with scattered somewhat irregular toning. The Treaty of Versailles had been signed only two weeks earlier and Wilson was clearly optimistic that it would be ratified by Congress; however, Wilson’s refusal to make concessions in domestic negotiations concerning the League of Nations resulted in the non-ratification of the treaty. Considered by historians as Wilson’s greatest failure, the outcome had vast personal and political effects—according to some, the setback was responsible for the stroke he suffered during the very heated negotiation process.
