Dear Dr. Patterson :

Your letter of the 9th received and I am sorry to learn that you are to leave Tuskegee, but have such confidence in your judgment that I am sure you are making the right move.  

I had hoped you would receive a call from the President for an important Government assignment.

Wishing you continued success in whatever you undertake,

Sincerely yours,
