The following letter is addressed to William Murray, from E. Gordon Bill, Dartmouth College, November 26, 1929:
My dear Bill:
You can imagine my extraordinary personal pleasure in informing you that Donald has just been reported as showing "outstanding promise" in no less than four out of five freshman freshman courses: Chemistry 1, Latin 7, Evolution and French 11.
There was only one other member of the freshman class with such a brilliant mid-semester report and we can all look ahead with confidence to Donald's future. He has got brains and industry, neither of which is much good without the other.
E. Gordon Bill
