Dear Pa:

I have just stopped in at my Red Cross office for a few minutes this morning, and Miss Newman has shown me your telegram from Saratoga Springs, which she received yesterday while I was en route.

With regard to your cordial invitation, may I point out that some time ago I was invited to visit you at Bar Harbor, and I waited up there in that neck of the woods for the invitation to materialize, and it got so cold that I could not stand it any longer. I could not find your whereabouts, and I finally gave up and returned to my raising in Virginia on my farm where I know I will be cared for, and where folks remember me.

With affectionate greetings from us all, I am

Yours,
