WT Waggoner to Cary T. Grayson




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




Dear Admiral Greyson

I have received and read with great interest your two letters of February 13th. I greatly appreciate the interest you have taken and the views you have given me, as I know no one whose judgment I give more consideration to than yours.

With reference to the arrangement you have made for Jock Walls to ride for me in the Kentucky Derby; I want to say this is entirely satisfactory and thank you very much for this.

I note that you say you feel sure you will be able to get me one more good boy and maybe two. I hope you will be able to get me the one certainly and possibly may need still one other as I have three horses entered in the derby.

Mr. Barwise and I have read the outline of the proposed publicity capagn which you sent me memorandum of and we think it sound and very comprehensive. Just at the moment those especially interested in this legislation are not attempting to make any decision as to the form of the proposed bill or the character of the campaign, believing that quite a few of the members of the legislature will feel will feel a very active interest and because of this the general impression seems to be to first consulting with them and get their views before arriving at any definite plans. We are keeping this memorandum for our future discussion.

I am always glad to hear from you and with my very best wishes, I am

Your friend

WT Waggoner
