"They are definitely fighting for those basic principles of human rights and dignity that are implicit in the teachings of Christianity"

World War II-dated TLS, one page, 7.5 x 9, personal Supreme Headquarters, Allied Expeditionary Force letterhead, July 15, 1944. Letter to Bennett H. McGee, in full: "I consider it a privilege to have the opportunity of sending through the pages of your magazine a message to the men that the East Glenville Methodist Church has sent to the fighting services. To each of them I should like to say that in this war they are definitely fighting for those basic principles of human rights and dignity that are implicit in the teachings of Christianity. I should like to tell them, also, that even though there are grim and bitter tasks still facing us, when soldiers are sustained by deep-seated conviction in the eternal justice of the cause for which they are fighting, the first great step toward victory has already been attained. Finally, I should like to shake the hand of each and say to him, 'Good luck and may you soon go back to East Glenville in the conviction of having done your duty nobly and well.'" Handsomely matted and framed with a portrait of Ike in uniform to an overall size of 19.75 x 14.5. In fine condition.
