Jessie Wilson An uncommon autograph letter, on The President's Cottage, Cornish, New Hampshire letterhead, signed July 12, 1913, by the middle daughter of President Woodrow Wilson. "I can't tell you what a pleasure it was to hear from you. I guess you know how much I always thought of you from the beginning-as much as a Freshman decently could, you know-and your 'hand clasp' from Virginia went straight to my heart. Thank you for it. It means a lot. I am wonderfully happy and I'm wishing only that I could spread some of my happiness and contentment every where. I wish I could hear about your Alaskan exile. What were you doing there?" Jessie Woodrow Wilson was to be married on November 25, 1913. Two pages, front and reverse of the 5 1/2 x 3 1/2 correspondence card. [ref:4974]
