TWO PROMOTIONS--to father and major--in one week is a happy record of accomplishment. The titles go well together. You are keeping your career in step with your growing family obligations and we are all proud of your progress.

I hope that my announcement of last night will also lift your heart. You and your men have fought gallantly to bring us to this moment of new hope for peace. You will all remain first in our thoughts as we await developments.

The family sends proud and warm congratulations. You are always in our prayers.

LYNDON B. JOHNSON


Note: The President's granddaughter, Lucinda Desha Robb, was born October 25, 1968, at the Naval Medical Center, Bethesda, Md., to his daughter, Lynda Bird, and her husband, Maj. Charles S. Robb, USMC.

The President referred to his address to the Nation on October 31 announcing his decision to halt the bombing of North Vietnam (see Item 572).

The message was posted in the White House Press Office at San Antonio, Texas. It was not made public in the form of a release.
