I was shocked to hear of the attempt on your life, and very distressed to learn that you have been injured. I pray that the injuries are not serious.

Our thoughts and good wishes are with you, Mrs. Reagan and your family. Our sympathies also go to your loyal staff who, we understand, have been injured.
