The letter, dated February 9, 1934, reads: “Please believe that I am deeply complimented by your letter of January 19th. It is no insignificant thing to be regarded as a worthy example and an inspiration to the young Americans attending your classes. I am not anxious to exploit myself personally, but in such a case as this, I defer to your judgment. Since it seems to you that my example may stimulate the initiative of the pupils in your charge, I am glad to send you the autographed photograph.”
