My dear Sherman:

I am chagrined to find that I have not yet acknowledged the cuff-links which you so kindly sent to me at Christmas. They are beautiful and I wearing them not only because of their beauty but because of the sentiment and friendship which prompted your sending them to me. I want you to know that I value them very highly.

I cannot tell you how badly I feel for not writing to you but this has been a very strenuous winter with me. I know you will bear with me.

I often think of you and Mrs. Allen and of your troubles and hardships here last summer. I sometimes wonder who was the braver - you with all the pains and the shock of an operation, or Mrs. Allen with all the anxiety and worry about you. But you proved to be a hero and Mrs. Allen a heroin.

I have not been to New York since passing through on my way to Saratoga last August. I was able to spend only a week there. I hope I will have better luck this coming August both as to the length of my stay and otherwise!Mrs. Grayson and the children are, I am glad to say, well. The boys are becoming more like real men every day.

I wish that you and Mrs. Allen could drop in to see us. If I come to New York at any time I am certainly going to look you up.

Again please forgive me for not writing to you before this, and with many, many thanks for your Christmas remembrance and best wishes to you both,

Cary T. Grayson
