Your gracious letter and the poetry of Mr. Huang Jigang  as well as your own writings have been received, and I am very grateful to you. I am very gratified by the fact that you have devoted yourself to scholarly improvement and to serving the people in the cause of education. You have my great veneration for that. I hope that you will continue to apply yourself to the task and that with each day's passing improvements will come and results will be achieved. That, indeed, is our fervent hope.
In reply and with my respects,
1. Huang Niantin was at the time of this letter an assistant professor of the Chinese language at Sichuan University.
2. Huang Jiang was Huang Niantin's father.
