My dear General Marshall:

I am almost embarrassed by your generous contribution to Tuskegee Institute for I regard you as already one of our benefactors. I am constantly grateful for what you have done to make it possible for Tuskegee Institute to render a large measure of service to the war effort through its ROTC and its aviation programs which now include pre-flight training. This further contribution to our work makes me more grateful than I can tell you. We shall make every effort to justify your confidence in us.

May I express my further appreciation for the great service which you are rendering our nation as the Chief of Staff.

Sincerely yours,

F. D. Patterson
