My dear Dr Grayson

I am prompted by deep concern over the illness of our wonderful president to take the liberty of calling your attention to a preparation of arrow root and cocoa called Racahant put up by James S. Robinson - Druggist
Memphis, Tenn.

It is, as you will see, easily digested and very nourishing and I have found wonderfully effective in producing natural sleep if drunk hot an hour before bed time.

I usually add a little sugar vanilla and cocoa which makes it more palatableIt is because of these qualities and the fact that it is not generally known that I venture to suggest it to your consideration.

With the best wishes for the speedy recovery of our beloved president - 

I am very Sincerely Yours

(Mrs) Elizabeth Dunbar Murray,
