In full: "I am in receipt of your letter, and obliged for your kind expressions. The matters about which you write are so largely in the future that I do not think it advisable to take them up at present. Of course, I would be happy, as always, to see you at any time. Yours very truly". Chauncey Mitchell Depew (1834-1928) was an attorney for the Vanderbilt railroad interests and President (1885-1899) and Chairman of the Board (1899-1928) of the New York Central Railroad.
