Dear Mr. DeCasseres:

Thank you very much for the San Francisco clipping of your column on Howard Roark. It was thrilling for me to see it, and it was very nice of you to think of sending it to me.

I liked your leaflet “I Am Private Enterprise” which you enclosed. I remember reading that in your column and I am glad that it has been reprinted for distribution to the public.

I do hope that you will regain your health soon—so that I will have a chance to meet you, a purely selfish reason. (That’s an example of how selfishness leads one to benevolence toward our fellow men.)

Sincerely yours,
