Typed Quotation signed: "Woodrow Wilson" as 28th U.S. President, 1p, 7x9. The White House, Washington. Dated in ink at bottom in unidentified hand: "November 8- 1915". In full: "(Extract from Address delivered in the Auditorium, Denver, Colorado, on the occasion of the Tercentenary Celebration of the Translation of the Bible into the English Language, May 7, 1911). I ask of every man and woman in this audience that from this night on they will realize that part of the destiny of America lies in their daily perusal of this great book of revelations-that if they would see America free and pure they will make their own spirits free and pure by this baptism of the Holy Scripture." Woodrow Wilson's father was Reverend Joseph Ruggles Wilson. His mother, English-born Janet (Jessie) Woodrow Wilson, was the daughter of the Reverend Thomas Woodrow, who emigrated to America from Scotland when his daughter was ten. Wilson's first wife was Ellen Axson, daughter of Reverend Samuel Axson, granddaughter of Reverend Nathan Hoyt. It was said that President Wilson had the "aura of a member of a hereditary priesthood" when he spoke. He was, in fact, the first President to personally deliver his State of the Union address before Congress, now an annual occurrence. Wilson died in 1924 and is buried, appropriately, in the National Cathedral in Washington. Slightly shaded at blank edges. Slightly creased. Overall, fine condition.
