Dear Friend

I have read your article with much interest and think it is perfectly fine. It reminds me of a photograph, which is flattering and which does not show the wrinkles and the freckles. I would, of course, rather depend on your judgment than on any suggestions coming from me. You will realize that it is a very difficult matter to analyze one’s self. You can readily analyze some one else but when it comes to yourself it is like a doctor treating himself. Wagner, who has been closely associated with me, read your article and prepared very roughly the two inserts which are enclosed. You can embody the substance of them in the article if you think it all right.

I am not sending you any material in regard to my relationship with Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Taft, for I think you have covered this sufficiently.

I want to thank you sincerely for your kind interest. You are a real friend.

I have heard a great many comments on your little book, “What Wilson did at Paris”, and they have all been mighty fine. The President has directed me to send a number of copies to friends of his, and I myself have sent a number of them to my friends. By the way, I wish to thank you most heartily for the autographed copy which you sent me. I value it very highly.

You will be interested to know that the President continues to improve slowly.

If I can be of assistance to you at any time, please let me know. Don’t wait too long before making another visit to Washington.

With warm regards,

Faithfully yours,

Cary T. Grayson
