My dear Mr. Pinchot: --
I thank you very much for the article, which I expect to read with much pleasure.
I was so sorry not to be able to accept your kind invitation to lend my services to your campaign, but I am sure Mrs. Pinchot has expressed to you my deep regret. Word from the hospital this morning is very encouraging concerning [Colonel] Roosevelt's condition.
With all good wishes for our mutual Cause, I am
