To Leo A. Farrell

[April 27, 1939] Denver, [Colorado]

Dear Farrell:

Now that my selection has been announced I want you to know that your much more than friendly interest has been deeply appreciated. For a good many years you have generously blown my horn, in season and out, and I am happy that your partiality to me finds some justification today.

I landed here an hour ago from Dayton, Ohio, and am off again early tomorrow for Ogden and San Francisco.

I will need your prayers for the next few years.

Hastily and faithfully,

G. C. Marshall
