There are more than twenty letters addressed to President Woodrow Wilson and others are addressed to William Jennings Bryan, Elihu Root, David Lloyd George, Sun Yat Sen, Wilhelm II, various U.S. Congressmen, newspaper editors, professors, reverends, and many others. A few of the "letters" are simply aphorisms or take the form of odd poems; one is an article on the Panama Canal that was declined by Time magazine.
