Transcription

Dear Dr. Stearns,

I wish to thank you for your very kind letter of April 24th. I have already written you about Charlie, and you would see from my letter that my only desire in wishing that Charlie take a post-graduate course was to fit him better to face the keen struggle for existence in China. I feel that unless Charlie is specially qualified along some line he may find it very hard for him to fit into anything here. But, as I said in my letter, if he is bent on coming home I would like that you advance him the money as you kindly did when Arthur returned.

Allow me to express to you my heartfelt thanks for all you say about Charlie. I am greatly encouraged and hope that he will live up to these high expectations in his future life and work.

Concerning China and her development, it takes time to make the adjustments to suit the new conditions, I am hopeful that the threatened fighting may be avoided. There is certainly room for constructive effort in this land, and I sincerely join you in the hope that in this the Andover boys will have & share.

With cordial good wishes´╝î
