Dear Dr. Freis:
Though my congratulations are belated, I've just now learned that you've received the Albert Lasker Medical Research Award for Clinical Research. I was proud to know of this latest honor and well-deserved recognition.
I will always remember with gratitude and admiration your help and many kindnesses. Mrs. Johnson joins me in warm best wishes.
Sincerely,
December 7, 1971
