503 East Grace Street, February 7, 1916 Mr. Alden March, Sunday Editor "The New York Times", New York City, My Dear Mr March,
We were all very much pleased with the appearance of the article in the Sunday issue of your paper with reference to the University of Virginia.
I am writing to say that this article was prepared by Mr. Leon Whipple, formerly connected with "The Times Dispatch", of this city, and now associate professor of Journalism at the University. Mr. Whipple is one of our promising younger newspaper men, and I was pleased that you thought, with us, that the article prepared by him was well done, for so it seemed to me.
Thanking you for your attention to this matter, I am,
Very truly yours, [blank] Chairman Central Committee
