"At one of the very last meetings I had right after the War, with Sir Winston Churchill and myself included, there was a sort of a round table discussion for the future of most of us. All wanted to rest, but without exception there was expressed the feeling that only in every possible movement that would keep the English speaking peoples allied – only in this way – could the much broader conception of keeping the UN working, and so on, be accomplished. In time of war, the union between the two peoples was something to stand as a model for all future coalitions, and I wish now we could translate it all into NATO. But I say this just to assure you of my very deep and abiding hope that not only will the money be coming in for your program, but I would like to see us grow. I believe that there is great work to be done, and various other organization are trying to do some of the same things. So long as we are pulling in harness together and in the same direction, we will get certain satisfaction of doing our part, not just as citizens of the United States, but of the world, trying to make of the ESU a base on which this larger campaign can be more effective."
