Letter from William Clark to Archibald Young

Description

Letter from William Clark of Uddingston to Professor Archibald Young expressing thanks for his treatment at hospital.

“4 Clydeford Drive, Uddingston, 18/7/39.

Dear Professor Young,

When I read in this morning’s newspaper a remark you made at yesterday’s presentation of your portrait in oils- “One is more sure of today- one can be less sure of tomorrow.” I decided to write to you at once.

How can I find words for the adequate expression of my thanks for the great kindnesses you have shown me? We are told that out of the fullness of the heart the mouth speaketh. I have sometimes doubted the literal accuracy of that statement and never more than today. Blame the poverty of my vocabulary but whatever the cause it is certainly not any deficiency in my keen and abiding feeling of gratitude to you. I was sorry that I did not see you again before I left the hospital, but most unfortunately was asked to released duly as Mr Orr would explain.

I have been keeping fairly well, but my feet have been troubling me. Perhaps I was too soon at work and didn’t get an opportunity to rest them enough.

Let me say that while in hospital, I was most contented and received kindness from everyone.

My debt to the hospital I have not yet paid. I have been wondering if there is anything I could give to Ward 19 in your name. I noted that the Ward had no dinner-waggon.
I must give something. If that isn’t suitable, then money shall be sent in honour of one who has been to me a great friend.

I am hoping to visit the hospital on Saturday and then may find out what would be the most acceptable present for the Ward, Prof. Young’s Ward.

I sincerely pray that your health will greatly improve and that you will be spared to us for many years.

I trust that this note has made clear to you the warmth of my deepest gratitude.

Yours sincerely,

William Clark”
