On the way to the Paris Peace conference, President and Mrs. Wilson visit Carlisle, England, on 29 December, 1918. Crowds gather at the main Market square in Carlisle, England, to welcome President Wilson on his “pilgrimage of the heart” visit to this birthplace of his mother. The weather is foggy and drizzling. The Crown & Mitre Hotel, where the President and First lady are staying, and where Wilson signed the freemen's roll, can be seen faintly across the square. A troop of horsemen lead an open horse-drawn carriage carrying the President, Carlisle Mayor Bertram Carr and another official. They step from the carriage in front of the Town Hall to await a second carriage carrying First Lady, Mrs.Edith Wilson. While waiting, Wilson doffs his hat and waves to the crowds attending in spite of the dreary weather. The second carriage arrives and Mrs.Wilson waves a large bouquet of flowers as she steps down from the carriage,followed by Lady Mayoress, Miss Eleanor Carr. The President, First Lady, and others then enter the Town Hall.
