Ray Stannard Baker to Cary T. Grayson




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




My dear Admiral

I finished a short sketch, in tentative form, about you some weeks ago. I intended to put in some further material, particularly relating to what you have done outside of the White House service and also, if I could get the materials, some further facts in regard to your relationship with Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Taft. But I have been so rushed with a series of articles I am writing on the industrial situation that I have been scarcely able to turn around. I am now enclosing the rough draft for you to read. I should be very glad indeed to have you make any suggestions, and the more of them the better. If you don’t like the general tone and tenor of the article, tell me that too and I will recast it.

I watch the papers every day to see about the President’s health and am very glad to see that he is gradually getting better. I know that you must have had a busy time of it. Please give my warm regareds to Mrs. Wilson, and to the President also, if there should be an opportunity. Please remember me also to Mrs. Grayson.

Sincerely yours,

Ray Stannard Baker
