Dearest

The enclosed list—are the doctors in Washington, I know best—Last night I had a nice little visit with Mrs. Buckingham and Miss Freeman. They were delighted that the wedding was going to be in New York. You have certainly made a great hit with them. Dr and Mrs. Old go to Norfolk to-day—Doctor Old’s home—for a vacation. He if is off for a month’s leave—I doubt if they are present for the great event, as they will be in North Carolina at that time. They show very strong sentiments in our favor, so mo they may decide to be there, after yo receiving your note.

The telephone is making such a noise that I can scarcely guide this pen—I certainly wish that you were here. The weather is beautiful and Washington is most interesting this particular week. But as the McAdoos—and Miss Margaret have company at the White House—I saw that Miss Edith would probably be inconvenienced with us—so I kept rather quiet about you as a prospective visitor.

In a few minutes I am off to a medical conference—With all my love which is lots more than you imagine—

Cary
