September 25 Wednesday – At the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in N.Y.C. Sam wrote to Frances Nunnally.

Dear Francesca: / I have just come ashore from the yacht, & am passing by to take the 12.55 Erie RR train for Tuxedo Park. You & your mother are out—naturally, at this time of day. I would have telephoned in advance, but there wasn’t time.

Won’t you & your mother come out to Tuxedo Park on Saturday & stay over Sunday? I hope you can & will. There’s a good train, with parlor car leaving the New York side at 12.40 p. m (only on Saturdays.)

Mr. Ashcroft (11 Broadway) can give you all needful information if you will call him up. And I shall want to know when to meet you at Tuxedo station & pass you by the guard. / With love [MTP]. Note: Frances and her mother were staying at the Waldorf. See Sept. 26 or 27 to Frances.

C.S. Vantassel for the Twentieth Century Publishing Co., Toledo, Ohio wrote to ask Sam if they could include some of his speeches in a planned 10-volume work [MTP]. Note: Lyon wrote on the letter, “Answd. Oct. 8, ‘07” and “Refer him to Harpers”
