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




Dear Mr. Secretary

I have received your letter of , as well as the clipping which accompanied it. I have read both with the greatest care and can readily understand how you feel about this matter. I called to see McLean immediately on the receipt of your letter but found that he had left the city for Bar Harbor, where he is at present. I do not know, in these circumstances, just when I shall be able to get in touch with him. I hesitate to lay the matter before him in writing, and before doing anything further I want to confer with some of your friends here as to the proper method of procedure. You may rest assured that I shall convey your viewpoint to McLean.

Mr. Wilson’s condition is practically the same as it was when you were here on your last visit. We have had a severe spell of heat, but he has shown no ill effects from it.

Gertrude and the boys are spending the summer at Narragansett Pier - same as last year. I am happy to say they are all well, and I hope that this will find you and Miss Eleanor and the children in excellent health.

With warm regards and best wishes

Affectionately yours,

Cary T. Grayson

Hon. WG McAdoo,
649 South Olive Street
Los Angeles, California.
