Dear Dr. John,

Thank you very much for having taken the time to write and to send the excerpt from [the March-April 1993 Journal of Robert John’s review of] Issah Nakleh’s Encyclopedia of the Palestine Problem. I am glad to have it, and I anticipate that it will prove to be of use.



Daniel Patrick Moynihan

Der Bundespräsident

Dear Mr. John,

Many thanks for your kind wishes on the occasion of my election to the Presidency of the Republic of Austria. I was deeply touched by your thoughtful gesture.

I have read with great interest your article [in the Winter 1985-86 Journal] on the Balfour Declaration and other historical aspects. I return you herewith The Journal of Historical Review.

One of the first important steps to overcome the horrible consequences of a tragedy, as was World War II, was to build up an atmosphere of understanding of mutual esteem between Europeans and Americans. That is why I appreciated so much your letter.

With warmest regards and best wishes.

Yours sincerely,


Kurt Waldheim
