Dear Pittman:

We are about to separate; each one going forth to try the realities of his future life, which at the present time presents a gloomy picture. Although you have begun your college course amid troublesome times, such as threaten the destruction of our own dear country, still may you live to honor the University by learning and justly acquired fame. May our associations often be renewed on earth and our friendship forever united in the Spirit Land.

Yours Truly
