Dear Chick,
Thank you for sending me a copy of your lecture as the Luther Terry lecturer at the COA meeting in Orlando, Florida. I must apologize for not being present at that time. I had fully intended to attend the meeting and had paid all of my registration fees for the meeting. As the meeting time approached, I found myself in a change of positions, moving my office, and several other personal problems. I am truly sorry to have missed your presentation.
I do appreciate your kind remarks relative to my period as Surgeon General. You were most kind and I do appreciate your comments.
I think you handled this difficult subject of aging very well. Your remarks embraced a great deal of thought on the subject, a real commitment toward understanding of the problem, and a rational approach to dealing with it.
With best wishes for your continued success as Surgeon General.
Sincerely,
Luther L. Terry, M.D.
