' ^ "But I think .the .".form of it. very unfortunate. Any reservation or resolution"stating that 'the United Stares assumes no-obligation under such ami such an article unless or except' would, I am. sure, chili our relationship with. the. nations ..with which we expect to be associated in the. great enterprise of maintaining the' vror.UVs peace. • "That association must, in any case, my dear senator, involve very ssrious and far-reaching implications of honor and duty, which, I am sure, we shall never, in fact, be desirous of ignoring. It-is,the more important not to create the impression that we are trying to escape obligations. He Accepts Reservations. "But I realize that negative criticism is not all tha't is called for in so serious a matter. I am happy to be able to add, . therefore, that I have once more gone .over the reservations proposed by yourself,.the copy of which I return herewith, and am glad to say that I can. accept them as they stand. "I have never seen ' the slightest reason to doubt the good faith of-our associates in the war, nor ever had the slightest reason to fear that any nation would seek to enlarge our obligations under the covenant of the League of Nations, or seek to commit us to lines of action which, under our Constitution, only the congress of the United States can, in the last analysis, .decide. . , .-"May I suggest that with .regard to the possible withdrawn! of the United States, it would he wise t'o give to the president the right to act upon our resolution of congress in the matter of withdrawal? In other words, it would seem to be permissible and'ad- visable that any resolution givjng notice of withdrawal should be a joint rather than ;i concurrent resolution. Holds Veto Right Eosentlal. . "I doubt whether the president can be deprived of his veto power "under the Constitution, even with his own consent. The use of a joint resolution "would permit the president, who 'is, of course, charged by .the Constitution with the conduct of foreign policy, to merely exercise a voice .in saying whether' so inrpbrtant a step as withdrawal from the League of Nations should be accomplished by a majority or by .a two-thirds vote. . . ... . ' "The Constitution 'itself, providing that the .legislative body was to be consul ted. in treaty-making, and having prescribed a. two-thirds vote in suqh cases,, it seems to me, .that there should be no unnecessary .departure from the method there indicated. < "I see no objection to a .frank statement that the United States can accept a mandate with regard to'any territory under Article XIH Part 1. or nny other provision of the treaty of peace, only by the direct authority and action of the congress of the Unit- States. "I hope, my dear .senator, that you will never hesitate to call upon me for any assistance that I. can render in this or any other public matter. "Cordially and sincerely yours, "WOODEQW WILSON."
