Text

My dear Mrs. Gardener:

I am greatly distressed to know that you have been in the hospital and are not yet getting back your former strength. I can realize how it distresses you to give up the work in which you have been so actively and intelligently engaged.You may be sure that the suggestion contained in your letter of August 16th will sink in my mind and that I will keep my eye open for suitable occasions when I may either in the way you suggest or in some other way be influential in bringing about the result we both desire.

With the best wishes and most sincere sympathy,

Woodrow Wilson
