Personal letter to Floyd Gibbons from General F. Foch
Commandement en Chef des Armées Allies
G. Q. G. A. le July 28,1918.
I understand that you are going to the United States to give lectures on what you have seen on the French front.
No one is more qualified than you to do this, after your brilliant conduct in the Bois de Belleau.
The American Army has proved itself to be magnificent in spirit, in gallantry and in vigor; it has contributed largely to our successes. If you can thus be the echo of my opinion I am sure you will serve a good purpose.
Very sincerely yours,
(Signed) F. Foch.
To: Monsieur Floyd Gibbons,
War Correspondent of the Chicago Tribune.
