Mr. B. E. Fulton
I have always intended to let you know how much I appreciate your Christmas card, with the candid-camera shots taken on the occasion of the Ground-Breaking Luncheon in Cleveland in connection with the Aircraft Engine Research Laboratory of the NACA at the Cleveland Airport.
It is very thoughtful and friendly of you to send such snaps. One of those snaps you took of me, my wife regards as the best picture she has ever seen of me, and wants to know what I could do to get it enlarged. I am wondering if you would be willing to lend me the negative of the print enclosed. The other three prints you sent me at Christmas time I have under the glass on top of my office desk, where they will be a constant reminder of your kindness
With kindest regards,
John F. Victory
