Ray Stannard Baker to Cary T. Grayson




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




My dear Admiral Grayson

I enclose herewith the program of the Argonne Players to which I referred. This really is a bully good thing. The 77th Division, as you know, was recruited in New York City and contains a number of the best talent of all kinds. They have one of the best song writers, Private Dubin, with them, and he has written a new song which they wish to dedicate to the President on the stage.

The entertainment will be given at the Elysee Palace Theatre, any night that the President can set. They can make arrangements on as short notice as 24 hours, but they would prefer two or three days, if possible, so that they could give it better advertising. I also enclose an account in the New York Herald of the performance given for Miss Margaret Wilson.

Very sincerely yours,

Ray Stannard Baker
