Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prime Minister):
Mr. Speaker, following the passage of the motion of this house congratulating Sir Winston Churchill on the occasion of his 88th birthday anniversary, I forwarded to him the motion which was passed by the house as well as a copy of the Hansard in question. I now have received from him the following letter:
My dear Prime Minister:
I am deeply obliged to you for your letter of December 1 which I received today. The honour which the Canadian House of Commons has accorded me means much to me and to my family. I should be glad if you would convey to the house my warm thanks and my profound and affectionate respect.
Yours very sincerely,
Winston S. Churchill
