Dear Princess Elizabeth,
Today is your eighteenth birthday and not only with all those in your father's realms rejoice with you, but also all English-speaking people everywhere, on this most important year-mark for you.
May I, on behalf of all your American cousins overe here, wish you
and may your fondest hopes be realized.
