12. Letter From President Nasser to President Johnson1

Dear Mr. President:

I take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to you and your family.

At this time which is sacred to both our people I feel that good relations should exist between our people.

I have sent a special message through Mr. Birdsall. I trust you will receive it in the spirit which I send it.

With highest personal regards.


Jamal Abdul Nasser
