Dear Gregg:
Many thanks for your personal congratulations and for your thoughtful work on this undertaking in Montreal. I hope you will not regret your decision to back our work.
I do not know how to thank a Foundation, but I thank God that it exists and I pledge myself to make their generosity bear the finest type of fruit of which we are capable.

I may serve for little more than a layer of fertilizer but the gift will be used as intended.
I hope that entirely separate from your official position, we may see very much more of you and perhaps also Mrs. Gregg.
Mrs. Penfield sends her best regards.
Sincerely yours
Wilder Penfield
April 15 1932
