What shocking news to me when I was told by Mr. Lewis that you could not pass the entrance examination. This means you have to wait for another year to attend the next entrance examination. I quite understand how you feel now. Still you have many more chances to try. So I hope that you will not take this to heart, and will get ready to try again. I am sure you will easily succeed next time.

June 11, 2014
Dear Mr. Forrest,
Word of the recent death of your brother has just come to me, and I hasten to offer condolences.
I had the privilege of knowing your brother in years past, and I realize your great loss. He was a fine and brilliant man, and he will not be forgotten by the many who admired and respected him.
Please convey my sympathy and my warm personal regards to all your family.
The people of China have been very much in my thoughts over the past two weeks as I have watched, with mounting concern, the effects of the devastation caused by the terrible earthquake in Sichuan Province. It has been most impressive to see the marvellous way in which the Chinese humanitarian operations have brought swift and effective relief to those affected. I am articularly pleased that the Wenchuan Earthquake Orphan Fund has been established, to help the children who have lost their parents in the disaster.
I wanted to take this opportunity to send my deepest sympathy following this terrible tragedy to the people of China, and my most heartfelt ondolences to all those who have lost loved ones.
