Text

My dear Mr. President:

I hope that you will again permit me to say a word with reference to the inspiring world message which you delivered last evening. I know of no other instance in history in which the education of the public opinion of an entire nation has been accomplished through the efforts of one man. Instead of leading public opinion along the beaten and traditional paths, you have blazed new trails and the American people have unhesitatingly followed because you have given expression to America’s deeply rooted idealism. A complete program of world service is laid before the American people and eagerly accepted as a call to the fulfilment of a great mission. Everywhere I go, I now find people speaking in terms of America’s mission and of her service to mankind.

Your address of last evening marks another step in the progress of this nation toward the great goal as the liberator of humanity. It contains a new Magna Charta for mankind.

Most sincerely yours,
LS Rowe


The President,
The White House.
