Dr. F.D. Patterson
Tuskegee Int. Ala

Dear Fred! -
Just a time to congratulate you for your appointment as head of Tuskegee. I dont know of any one who deserves the place any more than you, nor who I rather see have the place. 
You have my most hearty and best wishes for success in you new position.
I am going to Ames again this summer. I will be glad to have just a line in spite of your being a very busy man 
Your friend
