My dear Mr. President,

I wish to express my heartfelt appreciation of Your Excellency's having extended facilities enabling my wife to go to America for medical treatment and to have the opportunity of meeting you and Mrs. Roosevelt. I feel that through her, I am having the pleasure and honor of visiting you myself.

Madame Chiang is not only my wife, but she has been for the past fifteen years a comrade and partner who has shared dangers and braved death with me. She knows my mind and heart as thoroughly as it is humanly possible for one person to understand those of another. I hope, therefore, that you will talk as freely and fully with her as you would with me. I have every confidence that through her visit the personal friendship between us will be further deepened and that the relationship between our two great countries will be further strengthened.

With warm personal regards to you and Mrs. Roosevelt,

Yours sincerely,

Chiang Kai-shek ww2dbase

Famous WW2 Quote
"All that silly talk about the advance of science and such leaves me cold. Give me peace and a retarded science."
