  1. Dudley,
    It was shortly more than seventy years ago you and Eleanor met at the dances and other occasions at St. Andrew’s. Your most gentlemanly conduct and Eleanor’s most gracious lady conduct is a perspective that has not parted from me and I doubt most of our school mates. You and Eleanor have remained so gracious and thoughtful these seventy plus years and I have little doubt to every person you have encountered. Your fealty these past few years as Eleanor encountered unpleasant health issues is most admirable. May you and your children remember and reflect with much comfort and peacefulness all the goodness this Choate family has had with Eleanor the matriarch.
