Dr. F. D. Patterson, President
Tuskegee Institute, Alabama

Dear Friend:

I read, with regret, articles in the news concerning your resignation as president of Tuskegee Institute, my Alma Mater. I wish that you could have found it possible to have remained longer. Since you are leaving, I hope that you will help the Board of Education to select another fine president like you and the two past presidents. I have much interest in the institution, as you know, and I hope that it will continue to hold a high place in the hearts and minds of the American people.

Much success to you and family in your new field of labor. I know that you will make good. God bless you.

Respectfully yours,
