6 PAGE First Lady Lou Henry Hoover SIGNED HANDWRITTEN LETTER ALS 1917 Herbert. BACK IN TIME RARE BOOKS PO BOX 601057 JACKSONVILLE, FL 32260. [BACK IN TIME RARE BOOKS]. RARE December 12, 1917. SIX PAGE LETTER SIGNED BY THE FUTURE FIRST LADY, LOU HENRY HOOVER. ACCOMPLISHED ENTIRELY IN HER HAND! Lou describes hearing that her son Allan had lost his appendix in Baltimore. She goes on to discuss her “man-folk” (Herbert Hoover) going off over the ocean to war. A bit of nice WWI content here. My dear Dora Moody, I could not get in touch with your people the few days I was in California this autumn. Just as I was starting back I heard that had told some of our friends or family that if you knew when we were going off into the mountains with Father and the Dodge; you would all have come along. What an awful pity we did not get the word before starting instead of after returning. As it would have added so much to the fun we had to have had you along! Since I could not reach your husband professionally either – I believe you were all in the mountains somewhere then; I left word to ask him and send along his bill, so that it could get paid before it was forgotten and I have not heard a word from a Williams since; until today on returning from Baltimore where Allan has lost his appendix; I find the amazing and amusing account Amazing, – because we had not heard a whisper before of Tom going to France; amusing, – because after all my asking to have it sent three months ago; it finally arrived after the date on which he is announced as leaving “For France”. Where is he going; and when, really? Do wire him to stop and see us if he is anywhere near Washington! And since we are so near West Virginia, he will probably be in this neighborhood if possible. I know exactly how to sympathize with you in all the months to come, as my man-folk went wandering over that ocean and about under fire and in danger for three years. And I know that there is nothing anyone can write that will make it any easier! If there is anything we can do for any of your ever, let us know. Of course you are going to be a? Fine girl; and get lots of comfort out of those other two big girls. Give them both my love, and send it to Tom when you write. Yours lovingly, Lou Henry Hoover. VG – Original fold-marks.
