Joseph S. Carels, an assistant postmaster in Nashville who befriended Edward Emerson Barnard as a child in Nashville, remained a friend of the noted astronomer throughout his life. A congratulatory letter to Barnard on his discovery of Amalthea elicited this response. In the four-page letter, Barnard not only thanks his friend for his support but also expresses gratitude to everyone who gave him encouragement from his childhood in Nashville to his present position at the Lick Observatory.
