Dear Mr. Gerald,
On behalf of the stockholders of Excel Trading Co., I would like to thank you for your speech yesterday. Several stockholders have called me this morning to say how much they agreed with what you were talking about.
I was particularly pleased to hear that Excel Trading Co. is right on target with our mission statement concerning small businesses. The renewal of a solid economic base in the rural areas of the Midwest is the result of forward-looking people such as yourself and our board of directors. Dr. Michael, one of our largest stockholders, spoke to me this morning and put it succinctly, “Mr. Gerald hit the nail on the head when he pointed out that the future is in small businesses.”
Thank you for your inspiring speech. It was our privilege to hear you.
