Before I go away, may I not send you my warmest Christmas greetings with the hope that your recovery will be speeded and will be in every way complete.
I am hoping and expecting to sign the currency bill this evening at about six oclock, and it is a matter of deep regret to me that you cannot be there. You have worked so hard and so generously to bring about this fine issue of the whole business that I shall especially miss you, but I know that you will be thinking about us.
Hon. William J. Stone,
United States Senate.
