My dear Friend

I was delighted to receive your letter and more delighted that you are going to write the articles to which you refer concerning the President. It is a fine thing to do from various points of view, for, as you say, the President is such a poor publicity man for himself. Your writings will go a long way to give the outside world an idea of the trials and tribulations he went through in Paris for the sake of the great cause which he represented. I have read your first article. It is fine. It brought back to my mind vividly the scenes as they really occurred in Paris. I told the President that you were writing these articles and he showed that he was much pleased that you were doing so. I have heard many fine comments here in Washington about your article.

The President has been extremely ill, but I am happy to be able to report progress every day for the past ten days, although it is slow. Much caution and care will have to be exercised over him for some time, as he is still traveling on thin ice. I am doing my best and am hoping for the best.

Should you visit Washington at any time, please let me know as I would love to have you break bread with me and to have a visit with you. I am sure I could tell you some things that would be of much interest to you.

With warm regards, believe me,

Your sincere friend,

Cary T. Grayson
