"The Trustees have met, deliberated and in a friendly and serious way announced the appointment as of January 1st 1931 and congratulated me. So that phase of things is finally at an end: and I find myself responsible for diminishing the hours days and years of suffering and incapacity of I wonder how many people who may through the aid of R.F. money initially, be eventually affected by discoveries and improvements of the real people in the practice of medicine and the prevention of disease."
