Kikkert udlånes til Flåden

Brev fra: Franklin D. Roosevelt

Den udlånte kikkert
Men hun var et pragtfuldt syn. Røg og gnister blev spyet op fra skorstenen. Der må være sket en eksplosion, men vi hørte ikke noget.

To Miss Pauline Davison,
590 Washington Avenue
Tyrone, Pa.

Dear Madame:

Your prompt and patriotic response to the NAVY'S call for binoculars is most appreciated. The glasses will be very useful in the prosecution of Naval Operations until victory is won.

At the termination of the war, if possible, every effort will be made to return them to you when it is hoped that you will feel compensated for any evidence of wear, by the knowledge that you have supplied 'Eyes for the NAVY!' during a very trying period.

On behalf of the NAVY, I wish to thank you most heartily.

Very respectfully.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

as Assistant Secretary of the Navy.
