My dear Heath:

I have your letter about Col. Lincoln Karmany and shall keep it in mind against the time of action, though I have not consulted with the Secretary of Navy about this particular promotion as yet at all and we are trying to follow lines of strict professional standards in all promotions.

I feel that the Mexican situation is slowly working itself out and that the currency situation is rapidly working itself out, but, alas, combined they have played havoc with my game of golf. I play doggedly on every day but have wornout nerves when I tackle the job and do it indifferently. Someday when my nerves are in shape, I'll challenge you.

In haste

Affectionately yours,
Woodrow Wilson
