In full: "Ed [struck through], Dear Charley, Mamie and I deeply regret that my unruly gall bladder has caused you to cancel what promised to be a most interesting and enjoyable party. We felt complemented by your invitation and glad that you have suggested a 'rain check' for the spring. With best wishes for a fine Holiday Season and the happiest of New Years. As ever." In fine condition. From the collection of Brigadier General Robert L. Schulz, longtime military aide to Dwight D. Eisenhower.
