Dear Mr President:

Many thanks for your good Samaritan letter. Caring for me in the midst of so great a throng of heavy affairs is most touchingly friendly & kind.
How great a work for peace & fair play God is giving you to do, & how nobly you are doing it.- building a monument of Heaven's simple unchangeable foundational righteousness in the sight of all nations. Truly blessed are the peacemakers. At home all hearts are yours, & abroad how many millions more.

Warm congratulations.

Faithfully Yours
