⬩W⬩S⬩C⬩ My dear Carrie1:

I have to make a short talk3 at the Princeton4 banquet5 held at the Plaza Hotel, Thursday, May 4th. There will be several much better speakers6 than I, and I thought you might like to listen in on the radio. The speeches are to be given from 10 to 11 o'clock, P.M. New York2 time and will be broadcast by the National Broadcasting Company.

With love, Willie

Please tell Helen Mac.7 Carrie, and tell her I knew the baby's8 pictures at once (though addressed in an unfamiliar hand) from his likeness to his father9!
