Accept [etc.]

C. Diamantopoulos

The King of the Hellenes (George II) to President Roosevelt

I am deeply moved by your reply26 to my communication of the sixth of February. The great North American Union which has never failed to come to Greece’s assistance at every moment of difficulty has on this, the most tragic occasion of all, again shown all her generosity and understanding. The Greek people will never forget it. All who, thanks to your noble solicitude will be delivered from certain death, will always bless your name they and their parents and their children and the thought that the American people is at their side will give them strength in the moral struggle that tirelessly they continue to wage against the invaders.

George II
