Dr. Patterson, your 25 years of service to Tuskegee Institute, certainly will mean a lot to the new President and to the school in the future. I do think that you should be given a life position on the Board of Trustees. In this way, you will continue to keep a close contact with the work which you have given so much. I am sure that Tuskegee Institute is synonym now with F.D.Patterson.

To you, Dr. Patterson, I want to say well done, a good and faithful servant. And to you  in your future work, what ever it is, I wish you God's Blessings and the very best of health and happeness to you and to your family.

Yours very truly,
