From: William A Gray
To: Ruth (Barrell) Gray, New Providence, NJ
Received yours of 12th this morning and was very glad indeed to hear from you. We
are both in the same boat as regards writing. Days full of work and the nights too urgent in
their demand for rest.
I wrote I was going to St Louis tonight. Have bought tickets and will arrive at 7:30
tomorrow morning. Will probably see the folks sometime during Sunday. Will leave there
either Monday or Tuesday evening and sail straight for New York.
If Mer hasn’t already started East, perhaps she can arrange to come with me.
Would be glad to have her company back and I could help her in many ways.
Expect to have lunch with a paper dealer today and take in a base-ball game.
Tell Edward I miss him too and may have a chance to write him as I did Charlie.
Much love to all and many kisses for the best wife and sweetheart in all the world.
