    Ronald Reagan Speech Signed, "This is for you/ Ronald Reagan" at the top of the first page, 9 pages, 8.5" x 14", separate sheets stapled together in upper left corner, "The White House/Office of the Press Secretary/(Strasbourg, France)/For Immediate Release May 8, 1985/Remarks of the President/to a Special Session/of the European Parliament." President Reagan was in Europe to commemorate the 40th anniversary of V-E Day and the defeat of Nazi Germany. Speech as delivered, in part, "We mark today the anniversary of the liberation of Europe from tyrants who had seized this continent and plunged it into a terrible war.... I'm here to tell you that America remains, as she was 40 years ago, dedicated to the unity of Europe.... The leaders and people of postwar Europe had learned the lessons of their history from the failures of their predecessors.... We, for our part, can learn from the success of our predecessors.... If we're to succeed in reducing East-West tensions, we must find means to ensure against the arbitrary use of lethal force in the future.... It is for that reason that I would like to outline for you today what I believe would be a useful way to proceed.... I can't help but remind all of us that some who take advantage of that right of democracy seem unaware that if the government that they would advocate became reality, no one would have that freedom to speak up again...." Fine condition.
