This is a delayed response to your very fine letter of December 30. Your sentiments are much appreciated and I shared with you the nostalgic feelings that were the inevitable companion of the merger.
I would also agree that in most instances five page reports can be a pain but this was not the case with your report on Aurora Capital Corporation. I read it with great interest and it engendered in me a sense of admiration for your considerable accomplishments.
Warmest personal regards,
