Bill Wilson's Christmas Message to Dr. Silkworth

NEW YORK 17, N.Y.

December 25, 1949

Dear Doctor:

As no other time does, Christmas reminds us of our friends. None come more quickly to recollection than you and your good wife.
Surely great things have happened since that day fifteen years ago when you said "No, you're not hallucinating - you'd better hold onto what you have"! That saved my life and this is a letter of appreciation from Lois and me. What you have since meant to so many, no one can measure. You are among the first of those without whom A.A. could never have been.
Lois joins me in eternal gratitude.

Bill
