Dear Dr. Drew:
You may be assured that I shall be delighted if you use my name in support of your application for Fellowship in the American College of Surgeons. Without reservation I don't believe that I have to tell you that I cannot think of a more deserving individual and one who would be more desirable in the American College of Surgeons. As you know, they will send forms directly to me which I will complete most willingly.
I read with a great deal of interest your comments about the set-up at Gallinger and, as I told you a year or two ago, I will support in every way your participation when you feel sufficiently manned in your department to handle it. If you would like to start out with one man, that will meet with my complete satisfaction. However, I would like to sit down and talk with you about it some time at great length. Will you call me at some convenient time and we will arrange a meeting.
With personal regards, I am
Very truly yours,
Robert J. Coffey, M.D., Director
Department of Surgery
