Much as I appreciate the honor conferred, I prize the.degree chiefly because of your assurance that it brings with it the respect and affection of the men and women who make up my Alma Mater.

May I ask you to convey to all who have had a part in thus honoring me my sincere appreciation of the honor conferred, and particularly of the spirit that prompted the taking of such action. It is difficult to find words to express to you the comfort and encouragement which this expression of affection and regard has-brought to me. With kindest personal regards, I am Very faithfully yours, ROBERT G. SIEBr.CKER.
