Dear Mr. Flournoy,

Your letter has given me a great deal of genuine pleasure. The spirit of it is so generous and cordial that I hardly know how to reply. You were fine to write me as you did, and I wish you to know that the splendid feeling about the whole matter as expressed in your letter, is fully reciprocated by me. Gertrude is, indeed, a wonderful girl, and I believe the future holds much of happiness for us. With such generous friends as yourself—hoping for our happiness and helping to smooth over the rough places, we would be poor and helpless ourselves if we did not get out of life all it now so richly offers. Thank you, so much for your exceedingly nice letter; it could not have been better, nor more appreciated.

Gertrude has told me of the young lady you are to marry, that she is charming, and that she will be another tie to hold you two firmer together. Every good wish you have sent me is reciprocated in the fullest measure.

Yours very sincerely—

Cary T. Grayson
