I am overjoyed to hear the splendid news you have just sent me. I congratulate you with all my heart on the successful termination of these difficult and protracted negotiations, which is due to the patient and conciliatory spirit which you have shown throughout.

I am indeed happy in some small way to have contributed by my speech at Belfast to this great achievement.

GEORGE, R.I.
