God, the tears were streaming down my face as I received this heart-rending message. Then I threw up
Well, I'm sitting here in the humid heat of Brooklyn banging out the odd syllable, but here's something from someone I've never met, never spoken to, never bought off.
I don’t say it often enough, Drayton — but THANK YOU!
Thank you for the loyalty you’ve shown to my company in general — and to me in particular.
You have no idea how much your friendship means to me. But I have found a way to show you in a very valuable, very practical way.
I must ask you NOT to share this with anybody outside of your immediate family. I’m only doing this for a tiny handful of our very best friends. Telling others will only cause them to be disappointed.
For my entire big idea and all my thoughts about it, please see the entirety of the confidential letter that I have just written to you. I’ve posted it on this hidden page on my website:
Good luck and God bless!
