TLS signed “Dad,” one page, 8 x 10, personal letterhead, October 6, 1924. Letter to his son, Walter P. Chrysler, Jr., in full: "I returned from Detroit Saturday morning and found your fine letter. I do not want you to think that you have to answer my letters right away or answer all of them for I know you are busy with your studies and it takes a lot of your time. Just had a fine letter from Bernice this morning and she seems to be tickled to death to be a Senior and getting privileges she has not had before. I had a cablegram from your Mother stating they arrived safely and had a pleasant trip. I presume by this time they are used to Paris again and having a good time. Jack seems to be getting along fine and I think misses you a lot. He starts in to school this morning and Joe is going out with him tomorrow night and will spend a couple nights with him. I am awfully glad you have ordered your suit and hope that you will like it. I will put the football game on my calendar for November 14th and will see if it is possible for us to get down, and will try not to forget that parents are allowed on week-ends and will come down at the first opportunity. I know that you are digging right in and going to make good at Hotchkiss one hundred percent. Work hard and play whenever you get an opportunity. Reid is going to pick up your golf sticks today and will probably send them off tomorrow. I hope you received everything we sent you. If you want to, play tennis, golf, etc.; get plenty of exercise. When your mother returns I am sure she will write you all the news and tell you what a fine time she had. Please remember me to Harding and the rest of the boys." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. The year of this letter is quite significant given that 1924 was when Chrysler premiered his first automobile, the big six-cylinder, 68 horsepower Chrysler Six.
