TO: THE PRIME MINISTER TO GOVERNMENT

Sir Koryzi Alexander,

My son,  Evangelos Ioan. Ioannides, was killed during the operations at Kleisoura.

Ordered my four already serving sons: Christo, Kosta, Georgio and NikoIao Ioan. Ioannidi to revenge the death of their brother.

Keeping in reserve my other four sons , Pano, Athanasio, Grigorio and Menelao Ioan. Ioannidi class of 1917 and younger.

Please call all of them by name in case our motherland is in need or any other of my children die to get vengeance from the enemy.

Our final exclamation want to be: LONG LIVE OUR MOTHERLAND

ELENI IOAN. IOANNIDI

KYPARISSIA 2 FEBRUARY 1941
