Notes:
Transcription of the note reads: "Dear Wilder, I've been meaning to write to you for the last 3 weeks but a bad cold & the State Society meeting left me too busy. It is quite thrilling to be in on the beginning of & then to see the fulfillment of a dream. And you obscure it all. Here's hoping that all the visions of usefullness [sic] you have set of for the Institute are fully realized. If anyone can swing it you can, if training imagination & fermability are the important qualification. When H.C. sat (?) after his talk I found myself (?) la roi est mort, vive le roi. Make it so old (?) & good luck to you. As ever, F.C.G. Anne came in to funding me writing to you said she could have done much better than I have but wants you to know that her opinion is similar to mine."

This letter was written on F.C.G. stationary.
