The Polish Minister ( Lubomirski ) to the Secretary of State

Sir: I have the honor to submit the following cable received today for the President of the United States, from the Prime Minister of Poland:

“Mr. President, Having assumed the office of Prime Minister of Poland at this momentous hour, I hasten to renew to Your Excellency the expression of the Polish Government’s deep and sincere gratitude for America’s generous help and continuous sympathy extended to this country. Poland, for her part, not only has American welfare and American interest strongly at heart, but the entire Polish people consider Polish American friendship to be one of the greatest assets in the future prosperity of both countries. Let me add, Mr. President, that you having been the most staunch promoter and defensor of Polish Independence are at this hour of country’s greatest need nearer and dearer than ever to every Polish heart. Witos”.

Accept [etc.]

Casimir Lobomirski
