Dear Admiral Grayson

Your valuable wire has been received and in regard to your information about Mr. Preston Burch, I regard that as very valuable and later on we may be in a position to take the matter up with Mr. Burch and see just what can be done. At this writing most of our bunch are out of the city or I might give you definite information right away, as quickly as they return I will put the matter before them and see what disposition they want to make of it.

If we could get the hospital that is being considered at Arlington or thereabouts, I feel that it would be a great “feather in our caps” in getting our bill in through. We would have something to talk about, something to read about and I do believe that Arlington is the logical place for the sanitarium for the mineral water that Arlington has I don’t think there is any better - in fact the best as far as I am concerned, I use it in my home all of the time and I don’t think any other location would be as logical to the government or the citizens of Texas than Arlington would be and if its not too late for you to put in a good word in again for Arlington and I thank you very kindly for all of your information.

Broadway is training fine, he gets out now and really wants to run and it is the first time I ever have seen him show any interest in racing. It looks like he can run about as fast as he wants to and likes the distance fine. Kilkerry does everything we ask him to, he is one of the finest dispositioned colts that we have ever trained on our track in Texas. As you know, when you were here the only thing that was wrong with him was he had a bad leg, but this has been fined and he is now in perfect condition.

I hope this will find you and your little family in the best of health and would be glad at any and all times to have a letter from you and in the future meet again. I hope to have a long letter from you as I enjoy reading them very much and I beg to remain, as ever

Your friend,

WT Waggoner
