Woodrow Wilson replies to a letter from Albert I of Belgium, in which the King thanked the President for American military and material assistance.
Gilder Lehrman Collection, New York Historical Society, New York
Your Majesty’s generous message has been read with deep pleasure and appreciation and I beg to assure you that nothing that the American Red Cross or the body of my fellow citizens have done has been done more truly from the heart than the aid, all too little, which they have been able to render the gallant and suffering people of Belgium. We feel our common dependence with themon upon the full vindication of the cause of freedom
