ELMER LAYDEN - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 08/23/1924 - HFSID 266266. One of Notre Dame's Four Horsemen. Autograph Letter signed: "Elmer", 2p, 7¼x11. No place, 1924 August 23. I have answered every one you wrote.I figured I should hear from you today, and you would say you had received my letter. I sent it'Special', so you wouldn't have to wait so long. I will get up early tomorrow, and try to see if I have word from. I surely hope you have received the other three letters by the time this reaches you. It had a wonderful effect, as I was plenty tired from running around.
The'ads' are coming plenty tough like pulling teeth. We look for a bright future though. With your letters to help me, dear, they will have a hard time trying to discourage me.
All I need is your help, and I'm all set. I liked your rule, dearest, but I think we will make our own rules. Then you won't be able to holler'out of bounds. I will like nothing better, than the chance to see, and be with you for a while.
I pray that everything turns out as you plan. On October 18, 1924, less than two months after this letter was written, Layden's Notre Dame defeated Army 13-7. Sportswriter Grantland Rice wrote, in part: Outlined against a blue, gray October sky, the Four Horsemen rode again.
In dramatic lore, they are known as famine, pestilence, destruction and death. Their real names are Stuhldreher, Miller, Crowley and Layden..
