The Baltimore Sun article by Tim Smith wrote about the play HICK: "On March 4, 1933, the day Franklin Delano Roosevelt took his first oath of office as president, his wife Eleanor wore a ring she had recently been given by journalist Lorena Hickok. A couple of days later, after the two women chatted by phone, the new first lady wrote to her friend: 'Ah, how good it was to hear your voice ... Jimmy [her oldest son] was near and I couldn't say je t'aime et je t'adore [I love you and I adore you] as I longed to do, but always remember I am saying it, that I go to sleep thinking of you.'"
