I am more than pleased to learn that you have regained you health, and take this oppor-tunity to express the hope that you will continue to enjoy excellent health for many, many years. Un-til a few weeks ago, I was troubled myself with an attack of neuritis, which caused me a good deal of discomfort, but I am thankful to say I am now back to par. I was very much interested to receive the program of the Steuben Evening at the College. With my very best regards, and hoping you may find the time to write me occasionally, I am, Sincerely yours,".
