Dear Brother King:

Please find enclosed an honorarium of one hundred sixty eight dollars ($168.00) for the exceptionally able service which you have rendered during our Religious Emphasis Week Observance.

We are sure that this small honorarium is {not} given with the idea of paying you for your fine fellowship and most relevant and dynamic services, but we give it as a token of our appreciation for what you have done.

It was indeed a pleasure to have had you with us, and we pray for your continued success as a good man and a Gospel Carrier for Christ.

I am,

Sincerely Yours,
Walter R. McCall
