Franklin D. Roosevelt to Winston Churchill (December 8, 1941)
- December 8, 1941.
FOR THE FORMER NAVAL PERSON
The Senate passed the all-out
declaration of war eighty-two to
nothing, and the House has passed
it three hundred eighty-eight to one.
Today all of us are in the same boat
with you and the people of the
Empire and it is a ship which will
not and cannot be sunk.
