Lottie C. Garrett to Cary T. Grayson




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




My dear Cary

I am so happy in the thought that after helping to make the happiness of all your nearest and dearest friends, that the “Blue Bird of Happiness” has come to live in your own fine, noble, unselfish heart. I hear that Miss Gorden is not only beautiful and most attractive, but lovely in character as well—and I am sure it is true of her, or she would never have won your love. Do write to your old friend—and tell me all about it—Your way of expressing The President’s happiness appealed to me—That you rejoiced to see his “home life” restored to him—“He has done so much for us, in keeping our country from War, that we each, and individually, owe him a debt of gratitude, and we all rejoice with him, in his new found happiness—Congratulate him for me—I would love to meet Mrs Galt—and still more, Miss Gorden—and hope you will bring Mrs Grayson to see me.

I am always —

Affectionately your old friend

Lottie C. Garrett
