Dear friend Corona, Your letter made my wife and I feel so wonderful! Thank you for being such a good friend. Friends make their friends feel good when they are down…I thought this typewriter would suit you. Ask a grown up how it works. And use it to write me back. P.S. You got a friend in ME!
– Tom Hanks
I hold that establishing mixed schools will not harm the white race. I am their friend.

– Hiram Rhodes Revels

– Gabriel Mann
