Response to a Congratulatory Message from Vice President-elect Thomas Marshall
My warmest thanks for your generous telegram. Your part in the campaign was the source of great strength and stimulation. Now for the deep pleasure of close association in a great work of National service.
Note: Marshall's telegram read:
"I salute you, my chieftain, in all love and loyalty.
THOMAS R. MARSHALL."
