As I speak to you today I would like to wish you, wherever you may be, a happy Christmas. And though we live in hard and critical times, Christmas is and always will be a time when we can count our blessings. I myself have every cause a deep thankfulness for not only by the grace of God, and through the faithful skill my doctors, surgeons and nurses have I come through my illness. And I have lean1ed once again that it is in bad times that we value most highly the support and sympathy of our friends.
