Lexington, Kentucky l
1388.1* Fred:
While   was out on the West Coast on a trip you managed
to leave us and I didn't get to see you before you left, so
want to take this occasion to drop you a note.
While my message to you can be put into words, my feelings
can't, but I want you to know how much I appreciated the
opportunity of working with you, of learning to lmow you, and,
most important, your warm and constant support of my efforts.
I‘ve always regretted the fact that I had to move off the llth
floor because, for the short time that our Division was up
there, you used to frequently drop in and chat a bit, and once
we got down here I'm not sure that you were ever in this office.
‘ I want to wish you the very best on your return to civilian ,
clothes and indicate that I’m envious of you.
A day or two ago I got to look over the tentative con-
stitution of the consulta.nts’ organization, and I think it's
y Sincerely yours,
Brig. General, USA ‘
