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, signature[[C.A Jackson]] C. A.
