Your April 4, noon. You may say that it has not only been the patriotic duty of the Government of the United States to aid Serbia in its heroic struggle against the cruel aggressions of a relentless foreign power but a sincere gratification growing out of a deep fraternal affection which the people of this country feel for war stricken Serbia. You may say further that your countrymen share the conviction of the Serbian Parliament that with the cooperation of our friendly nations victory will be assured with a lasting peace and a glorious future for Serbia.
