Greeting to America by Ioánnis Metaxas. 4 November 1940

Speaking on behalf of the whole Greek people. I wish to extend a cordial greeting to the noble American nation, with whom Greece is linked by a long tested friendship, and whose progress and contribution to the civilization of our times every Greek follows with affection and admiration.

I also wish to take this opportunity of extending a most hearty greeting to the numerous Greeks living in the United States, who, although patriotic and loyal citizens of their new country, which has so generously received them, have not ceased to cherish affectionate sentiments towards their Mother country.

Athens, 4th November 1940 Ioannis Metaxas.
