My dear Carey

I have received your two recent letters about “Pa” Watson and Mr. Oxnard. I have seen both of them and expressed the hope that I might be of some real service to them. “Pa” Watson is an old friend of mine, and I was very happy to meet Mr. Oxnard. I am always glad to see your friends and hope you will have no hesitation in giving a line to any of them who purpose visiting Paris.

My work keeps up without interruption, but intense as it is I enjoy every minute of it and recognize all the time what a great opportunity President Wilson gave me in placing me here at this most interesting juncture in the world’s affairs. Never a day passes but my wife and I speak of him and pray for his rapid restoration.

We spent three days in London this week, practically the first interruption I have had in my work since I arrived here fourteen months ago. I got away once before for three days and another time for two, but with these exceptions it has been an uninterrupted grind. Today I am eagerly waiting for the results of the Chicago Convention. I wish I could be in Washington for the next two or three days. It would be most interesting and illuminating.

I hope those dear babies of yours are thriving. Please give our love to their mother, and believe me,

Your devoted friend,

Hugh C. Wallace
