To Major General Edward W. Nichols
January 31, 1923 Washington, D.C.
My dear General Nichols:
I have delayed in answering your note until General Pershing’s plans for February had somewhat cleared up. I am assuming that the talk you desire would have to be made on Friday evening. Saturday night, of course, would be more convenient for me, but Lily tells me these affairs are scheduled for Friday.
If agreeable to you, I could leave here Friday morning so as to arrive in Lexington at 6:30 Friday evening, February 23rd. In confirming this proposal or suggesting some other date, will you please give me some details of the general character of these talks,—usual length, are lantern slides ever used, your idea of what I should talk about.
Lily appreciates very much the invitation from Mrs. Nichols and yourself, but she will not be able to accompany me as her mother is now with us.
G. C. Marshall, Jr.
