Letter from Princess Elizabeth to Admiral Stark, November 27, 1947 


Buckingham Palace 

27th November, 1947

I want you to know how pleased and how touched I have been by your generosity in helping to pay for the C.A.R.E. food parcels which the Share-through-CARE Committee is sending to poor people in this Country as a Wedding Present to me.

I thank you on my own behalf for the personal good wishes to The Duke of Edinburgh and myself which your present represents; and I thank you on behalf of the many Widows and Children in Great Britain to whom the food you are sending will bring a ray of sunshine during the coming Winter months.
