The last item is in accordance with your suggestion. Get trained experts familiar with improved modern methods to conduct the institutes.
In closing our official intercourse and my connection with Southern Education, to which I have given my whole being, allow me to thank you and your accomplished assistant for all your courtesy and cheerful co-operation, and to wish you and the schools in dear Alabama abundant prosperity.
Yours Very Truly,
