8 May 1945

 

Dear General de Gaulle:

Thoughts naturally gravitate to you today and of all you have stood for and your courage and steadfastness during these past five and a half years.

I rejoice with you that you have ever kept your flag flying and may it ever continue to do so to the restoration and to the glory of France.

My every good wish is ever with you.

Always,

Sincerely,

[unsigned]

 

General Charles de Gaulle,

President of the Council of Ministers,

French Republic,

Paris, France.
