The following message, dated January 11, 1932, was addressed from President Herbert Hoover to Emanuel Neumann of the Zionist Organization. It was read at the organization dinner of the American Palestine Committee in Washington DC on January 17, 1932. (Emphasis added).

My Dear Mr. Neumann :

I am interested to learn that a group of distinguished men and women is to be formed to spread knowledge and appreciation of the rehabilitation which is going forward in Palestine under Jewish auspices, and to add my expression to the sentiment among our people in favor of the realization of the age-old aspirations of the Jewish people for the restoration of their national homeland. I shall appreciate it if you will present my cordial greetings to those attending the dinner in Washington on January 17th to advance this enterprise.

Yours faithfully,

Herbert Hoover
