Tuskegee Institute
Tuskegee, Alabama

Dear Doctor Patterson:

I have your note of March 10 and greatly appreciate it. I am writing now, however, to express my personal regret over your decision to leave Tuskegee Institute. I am sure that your new duties will open a broader field for you, and I congratulate you upon that, but I think you've done a fine job at Tuskegee, and I am sorry that you are leaving.

I have greatly enjoyed working with you, and my good wishes will go with you wherever you may be.

Most sincerely
