Good evening Bro. Bill,

Just  wanted to let you know that I had the pleasure of acting as your son's guide this evening as he progressed to the 2nd Degree.  His work was flawless and he showed a lot of confidence before some 20 Brethren who turned out for the emergent meeting.  We even had guests from two other Lodges, which is good for an emergent meeting.

Looking forward to having him involved in doing work in the presenting of degrees - I think he will be an asset to the Lodge.

Have a great day - you did a good job raising him.
