Dear Pa:

From my standpoint your contribution to the luncheon yesterday was thoroughly appreciated, but I regretted to note afterwards the feeling of misunderstanding and disappointment by the delegates in you over the fact that you seemed to make little of my ability to speak Spanish. They thoroughly understood me. I tried to make due apologies for your indiscreet remarks.

They thought also the remark that Grayson County was the only one to go Republican in the recent gubernatorial contest was also out of order.

Nevertheless, as of old, I am for you.

Yours,
