I could take out of my life everything except my experiences at St. Andrews and I would
still have a rich and full life.
When you have made me aware on many occasions that you have a kindly feeling toward me, and when you have honored me by every means at your command, then when I call you my friends I am at once affirming my high regard and affection for you and my trust in the sincerity of your expression. And so, my fellow citizens of St. Andrews, it is with this appreciation of the full measure of the work that I salute you as my friends.
