Signed autograph letter, bets, October 19, 1926, to General Ulysses g. Clemenceau, who writes unusually in English, thanked his correspondent for his kind letter and said that his arteries were in good condition and that he considered his diabetes \"cured\" by insulin. General Mcalexander, a retired major general of the U. Army, forwarded this letter to m. Blodgett explained that this letter was written in response to george clemenceau's invitation to come to America, free of charge, for treatment of arteriosclerosis and diabetes.
This treatment was still very recent because insulin was not discovered until 1921. Prior to this discovery, people with diabetes were condemned and could only survive, on a strict diet, for a maximum of three to four years. It is interesting to note that only two months before this letter was written by clemenceau, the former chairman of the council had written, on August 9, 1926, an open letter to the American president Calvin coolidge in which he argued against the payment by France of all his war debts declaring that \"France is not for sale, even to his friends.\" The clemenceau appeal was not heard.
