Angus McLean to Cary T. Grayson





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




Dear Doctor

Affairs here are moving along very nicely and things look much brighter than they did a few months ago. The Surgeon General’s office has sent over several Reserve Corps Officers, to observe matters and report back. It is impossible for them to get the information desired in a few weeks. The men who have been here for several months I think know more about it. The spirit of the day is, “what we are going to do for our wounded,” and not enough said about, “how we are going to wound the enemy”. There are too many Red Cross, and other people here. They all have to be supported. There is much that can be sauid that cannot be written. If we had a battle tomorrow, we could easily take care of our wounded, and do it well.

I have written Allen today and suggested that I would like to get back there for a couple of weeks in March. We expect a big drive now, and are patiently waiting for the event. Many hundreds of people now, come to see the Presidents picture in the Hotel d’Ville, and particularly since his Peace Propaganda.

Yours very truly,

Angus McLean
