Dear John: 1
When I saw you the other day I realized that you had been from the first more deeply concerned about your own good faith than I could possibly be, and my misgivings must have seemed both heartless and thoughtless. My excuse must be that I didn't know you very well, that legal ethics are often baffling and sometimes disillusioning to the layman and that one learns to be astonished at nothing in a business deal. In the last analysis there is nothing to rely on but personal probity and from now on I shall rely on you implicitly.
