Message to the France-America Society.

February 06, 1932

[Released February 6, 1932. Dated February 2, 1932]

My dear Mr. Guthrie:

The one hundred and fifty-fourth anniversary of the signing of our treaties with France is a happy reminder of a continuing amity which has not only bound these nations together with ties of historic friendship and understanding but has strengthened the cause of human liberty. When the France-America Society meets on February sixth to commemorate this anniversary I shall appreciate if you will express my deep appreciation of its significance and extend my cordial greetings to the participants in the occasion.

Yours faithfully,


[Mr. William D. Guthrie, President, The France-America Society of New York, 270 Madison Avenue, New York City]

Note: The message was read at the society's annual luncheon which was held in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.
