    "Thank you for your letter of yesterday with its enclosure. The declaration adopted last week by the Executive Commission of the General Assembly, and also by the representatives of the Missionary and Benevolent Boards and Agencies, is indeed gratifying and is a renewed proof of the stalwart patriotism of the great body which they represent. I am glad to note that they add to their resolution concerning the support of the Government at this time of crisis a resolution 'to maintain all the benevolent, moral and missionary work of the Church both at home and abroad in the most effective manner possible.'" Boldly signed in black ink.

    Condition: Usual mail fold, very light toning at edges. Mounting residue on verso. Overall very good.
