To Henry Morgenthau, Jr.

December 23, 1940 [Washington, D.C.]

My dear Mr. Morgenthau:

Along with my holiday greetings and good wishes go my thanks for your powerful assistance in getting the Army program under way, in both men and munitions. I do not forget your determining influence on two specific occasions last May when the real beginnings of our major preparations were launched.

I wish again to express my thanks and appreciation and to wish you all good things—and far-seeing wisdom, in this coming year with its tragic possibilities.

Faithfully yours,
