The copy-text is Wilson 1919a [= A]. This selection was based upon the following criteria: 1) This version of the text was the most widely circulated and remained the authoritative text until 1990. 2) Aside from the Pueblo (CO) Chieftain version, all of the available texts use it as the foundation for the speech and therefore closely resemble the Senate document. 3) With the exception of the Link text, which was compared against the Pueblo Chieftain, all of the texts include minor changes that do not significantly affect the meaning of the speech. Except where specified in notes, Wilson 1919a [= A] is followed for paragraphing, spelling, and punctuation.
