MY MEMOIR

A very personal and intimate picture of the people and events in the life of Woodrow Wilson's second wife. Brief background of her childhood and youth , incidental in relation to the whole. Her meeting with the president, their growing friendship, her final acceptance of his declaration of love. Then the second presidential campaign, the War years, the mounting pressure of work, the Peace Conference and the tour abroad studded with royalty, the tragic results and Wilson's illness and retirement. Outspoken impressions and recollections of people, feminine and intimate touches about her clothes and those of famous people, anecdotes -- kindly and otherwise -- of famous figures, and occasional interpretation of passing events. Primarily, however, a personal record of what she saw, heard and believed, colored by her worship of her husband. A popular approach to a strategic period in world history -- behind the scenes in the life of a famous president. The S E P serialization took in only about a third of the whole, so should help the sale of the book. There will be 1001 copies, autographed,with additional illustrative material, special paper, etc.
