Dear Dr. Carr:

Just a note to again express my appreciation to you for giving me the opportunity to preach in your great church. I will never forget the kindness that you have shown toward me in my ministry, and I only hope that I will be able to repay it someday in some little way.

I hope everything goes well with you and your family. Please remember me to your charming wife.

With best wishes. I remain,

Cordially yours,
M. L. King, Jr.
