WOODROW WILSON
The President accepts an invitation from Rupert Hughes to join General Hind Quarters, a humorous association of literary spies.
Typed Letter Signed: "Woodrow Wilson" as President, 1p, 7x8¾. The White House, Washington, 1918 November 20. To Rupert Hughes, Washington, D.C. In full: "Of course I appreciate sincerely the good fellowship of the members of the General Hind Quarters in electing me a member. I wish, though I can hardly hope, that it might be my pleasure to foregather with them." President WILSON signed this letter just nine days after the armistice was signed, ending WWI. It is addressed to author, composer and film director Rupert Hughes (1872-1956). While serving in the Military Intelligence Division of the War Department during World War I, Hughes and other literary lions formed General Hind Quarters. According to member Kenneth Roberts, the purpose of this club was "to encourage the physical, moral and intellectual development of the world ... to foster among its members a love for all that is beautiful, spontaneous and soporific in the realm of literature, science, veterinary surgery, psychoanalysis, kinetic stability, free lunch, optometry and military intelligence." Creased. Soiled. Bold, slightly damp stained signature.
