Thank you very much for your telegram regarding the speech I gave in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night. I am delighted to know you approved of the emphasis on peace, people, partnership, prosperity and prayer — and, incidentally, I believe you have given me an idea around which to build a future talk.
With my thanks and best wishes.
