T., The Man Who Carried The Message To Bill W.
In 1960, at the Long Beach, California Convention of Alcoholics Anonymous, Bill Wilson wrote this dedication in an AA book that he gave to Ebby Thacher.—"Dear Ebby, No day passes that I do not remember that you brought me the message that saved me - and only God knows how many more. -In affection, Bill"
"Ebby had been enabled to bring me the gift of grace because he could reach me at depth through the language of the heart. He had pushed ajar that great gate through which all in AA have since passed to find their freedom under God." -- Bill W., Grapevine
