I am going to attend to the announcement cards the very first thing in the morning. The reason I did not do it to-day was because you said consult Miss Edith and Miss Helen. They motored to Baltimore early this morning and did not return until after six o’clock this evening. I am going to see them in a few minutes, I shall tell Randolph you want 1500—and perhaps more. I am working on my list to-night. I shall urge Randolph to hurry the order which I know he will do—for I spoke to him about this.

Do get a secretary to help you. I am going to do likewise—If it suits you as well why not spend Sunday in Philadelphia, as I know that would be more convenient to our Cousin host—Sunday is the day for luncheon at the Country Clubs; and I could return to New York with you that afternoon and stay over Monday. I shall plan to meet you at the Pennsylvania station—Philadelphia—a good train for you to take leaves New York at 10—a.M. or 10.03—should we miss each other at the station—go direct to 262 South 15th St. Dr Charles P. Grayson’s home. But I’ll be at the station unless the train fails to run from Washington.

Numbers of people want to give us a dinners here. We are popular. Do you realize it?

How about spending a few days here about the 15th? If you do not come here, I am going to go to New York for four or five days about the 15 or 16th. I want to be near you when there is so so much to talk and plan about.

Colonel House is here. He wants to see me to-night. Said you had talked over the telephone and it pleased him greatly.The President and I played golf at Chevy Chase Club this afternoon. This was the first time he has been on the Chevy Chase course since December.

I am hoping to be able to go to the Races Friday. They are at Pimlico now—I turned down the offer for Bamboo and the colt—and shall keep the black for a saddle horse and hunter. He is good looking. It is very warm here to-day—I miss you—I love you, my dearest—
