Dear Joffre:

The University Club is glad to advise you that it has decided to extend your scholarship to the University of Florida for the coming year, 1935-36, in the same amount, $250.00, as last year. The Committee is gratified with your record thus far and hopes that you will continue the good work.

We would like it to be understood that there are no obligations attached to this scholarship other than that of an earnest effort to make the most of your opportunity to improve yourself, and to prepare to render a higher order of service to your fellow men in your later life.

However, we will hold open the privilege of returning or repaying these funds, or any part thereof, for the extension of this privilege to other deserving young men who may follow you.

The best wishes of the University Club are extended through its Committee.

Very truly yours,

Colin Murchison

August 19th, 1935 letter to Joffre C. David, University Club scholarship recipient, from Colin Murchison, President of The University Club for 1935.
