Far Away Washington

01 Jan

Washington, DC
May 8, 1921 (Mother’s Day)

From: William A Gray
To: Ruth (Barrell) Gray, 249 Boulevard, Summit, NJ

My Dearest Ruthy:

Arrived here long enough ago (now 11:30 Eastern time) to unpack and get into
pajamas and fill a pipe. Didn’t expect to stop at this hotel, but was turned down at Army &
Navy Club, on account of no vacant rooms and this place is only a block away. Have a
very nice room on top floor with “twin beds,” bureau, cheffonier, etc, etc.

Will probably be here long enough to get your letter by return mail.

Alone in this room in what seems “far away Washington” is quite a contrast to my
surroundings at dinner today. I might stand this for a little while, but not long. 

Well, dearest Mother in all the world; good night and sweet dreams; hug and kiss                                                 all the flock from Big Bill to Jolly Joe for me and with worlds of love
to your own dear self, I am as ever

Your loving husband
