Disputes about printing confidential national security information have flared in recent years, but this particular letter is dated July 11, 1916, and was sent by Newton Baker, Woodrow Wilson's secretary of war. It is part of a vast collection of personal letters, financial documents, confidential reports, photographs and more, more than 700,000 pages in all; that The Times has donated to the New York Public Library.
