President Roosevelt to the King of the Belgians ( Leopold III )

I have read with the utmost measure of satisfaction Your Majesty’s address of August 2351 and the appeal for the maintenance of peace [Page 363] made therein in the name of the powers of the Oslo group. Your Majesty expressed the hope that other heads of states might join their voices with yours in the same desire for the peace and security of their peoples.

I take this occasion to assure you that the people of the United States and their Government wholeheartedly share the hopes and the aspirations so eloquently expressed by Your Majesty.

Franklin D. Roosevelt
