Dear Friends,

Once more it gives me a great deal of pleasure to thank you for your expression of remembrance. You are certainly doing a wonderful job in keeping in touch with Bryant graduates and bolstering their feelings.

The time has come when I have found classrooms that are much warmer than any Bryant have to offer and August exams haven’t rolled around yet. Yes, it is mighty warm down here and I will be glad when I can spend some time in the cool north in about three weeks.
