Hello Naomi and Michele. A BIG thank you for your quick delivery of both President Wilson's TLS and Edith Bolling Wilson's letter to Mrs. Bainbridge Colby. They are both magnificent! My eyes actually welled up after seeing and reading them. You're talking to an old west Texas boy who grew up reading American History at age 8. I am 48 now and I still love it! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. You have made my day! - Tex
