Letter from Princess Elizabeth to Admiral Stark, April 27, 1945 


Buckingham Palace 

27th April 1945

Dear Admiral Stark,

I was so delighted to receive your letter of good wishes for my birthday, sent from yourself and the American Navy over here, and also the maple sugar which is much appreciated by my sister and myself.

I send you all my most grateful thanks for your kind thought, which has touched me very much.

Your sincerely,
