I did an assembly this morning on the subject of letters. Reading the extraordinary Heart of a servant leader and receiving an encouraging letter from my friend Kaarina in Armenia reminded me what a blessing letters are. I am resolved to write a few more letters.
In my search for interesting letters I happened upon this written by Lincoln to Ulysses Grant. It has the wonderful and humble admission in the last sentence:
"....I now wish to make the personal acknowledgment that you were right, and I was wrong"
Now, you don't see that sort of line from a leader very often.
