Dear Admiral Grayson

Enclosed you will find a letter written by Judge Barwise, my attorney, for your examination and your approval. Will you be kind enough to write me a letter, after reading this, and probably you could put in something more beneficial than even Mr. Barwise has. I want it to be a letter that will please all of Texas in a political way and every other, and a few words from you would be great to these people here.

I know that you are a big man. You don’t put the estimate on yourself that I think you ought to. You know what I told you about running for President. I do think you could be elected, in case you felt disposed to make the race, and I know that no greater man ever ran for an office than you are. Everybody knows you, everybody talks about you, and everybody says good about you.

You can write me a letter after thinking over Judge Barwise’s letter carefully, and add to it and take from it as you think best. I want to do something for the good of Texas and to aid such men as Admiral Cary T. Grayson.

I hope that you returned home and found your family all well and everything had been carried on to your satisfaction in your absence.

We certainly appreciate very highly your presence here with us and hope the next time you come we will be in better shape and can do business in a larger way than we did this time.

Thanking you again, I am

Your friend

WT Waggoner
