A letter to Amon Carter, Jr. of Texas, responding to an invitation. Eisenhower writes that he is not able to respond definitely, but should he be able to attend, would it be okay to bring a friend, and explains: "The reason I as this is that I have not personally drive a car in the or twelve years and I might possibly pile myself into the ditch if I should attempt it."
