THE WHITE HOUSE

WASHINGTON

 

April 6, 1959

 

Dear Mrs. Farrington:

The anticipation of Hawaiian statehood stirs the hearts of all Americans. Years of effort have finally extended the boundaries of our beloved land far out into the Pacific to encircle the islands of Hawaii. The people of forty-nine states welcome those of the fiftieth into this new relationship.

 

With warm regard,

(signed) Dwight D. Eisenhower
