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





I have just told Hoover the good news and he was pleased beyond expression. I wish that you could have seen him; he was so happy.

He said, “Well, that is the best news I have heard since Mrs Hoover said yes.”

The President and I had breakfast alone this morning. We poured out our hearts to each other. It was a love feast.

I never felt so happy, dear. When I awoke this morning I felt that I had had the most refreshing sleep of my life, and I feel so good, I am so thankful and all beyond power of description for your wonderful love. Oh! darling, I love you so!

Arch. and I had a fine talk at the Club last night. He loves you already.

I told the President how greatly you appreciated his fine letter. He said that he wished you were here this week.

I am going over to the Naval Hospital in a few minutes with Arch. Then, I have a thousand things to do,—but I have no troubles; no worries, no enemies—all happiness because of you—my precious darling—
