Cary T. Grayson to Alice Gertrude Gordon Grayson




Cary T. Grayson Papers, Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library, Staunton, Virginia




Dear Sweetheart,

I called at Beckers to-day, examined your saddle and gave instructions what to do—It is too low in the rear; but as it is it would fit some horses—but evidently does not suit Kelly. Becker promised to send it to you by the end of the week. I hope it will be allright.

I tried to telephone you to-night, nothing special but I just wanted to hear the sound of your voice. I miss you and felt lonely for my darling—

This morning I played golf with the President. We had a real good time and a good game. Miss E. has not played this week.

I had a busy day with the Board—most of the time spent examining records etc.

This evening I persuaded Mr. Mc Adoo to go for a gallop, I mounted him on Misty Morn and I think that he enjoyed him but we sure did “hit ut it up at high speed”. I rode Videt.

The President is weakening on the Western Trip. He thinks it might be construed as a political outing—and he does not like that aspect of it. Mr. Mc Adoo is urging him not to go on account of the great danger of it from a physical viewpoint—out among the IWW.

I have not heard Miss E. speak on the subject. She is up and around now, and looking fine and is just sweet and lovely as she ever was. She really loves Trudie.

Good night, my darling—and kiss little Gordon for me and a many, many kisses for my precious, dear Trudie—

Your own
