MESSAGE FROM HER ROYAL HIGHNESS PRINCESS MARGARET
TO HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR-GENERAL OF
THE WEST INDIES.


The following message has been sent by Her Royal Highness PRINCESS
MARGARET to His Excellency the Governor General of The West Indies:-
As I leave the seat of Government of The West Indies, I send to you, and
through you to the Prime Minister of the Federal Government, and to the
Members of both Houses of the Federal Legislature, my warmest thanks for
the truly wonderful welcome which has been given to me throughout my
visit for the Inauguration of the new Federal Parliament. This welcome
and the moving ceremonies of the Inauguration have been unforgettable
experiences, and I was especially glad to be able to meet so many of those
people from all the territories of the Federation, who will be playing their
part in this great venture. I also send to you and to your Government, and
to all the people of The West Indies, my heartfelt good wishes for the future
happiness and prosperity of the Federation.
MARGARET.

GOVERNOR-GENERAL'S REPLY TO MESSAGE FROM HER ROYAL
HIGHNESS PRINCESS MARGARET.

The Governor General has replied to the message of Her Royal Highness
as follows:-
I have just received the gracious message from Your Royal Highness
with feelings of gratitude, which I know will be shared to the full by the
Prime Minister, Government, Members of both Houses of the Federal Legis-
lature and by all the people of The West Indies.
While we are all delighted that Your Royal Highness should have
derived so much satisfaction from your stay with us, we, on our side, find
it difficult to express adequately, the debt we owe to you. That you should
have presided over the ceremonies of Inauguration has immeasurably
enhanced the dignity and beauty of an historic week. By the warmth of
their welcome, the people of The West Indies have wished to express not only
a sense of deep gratitude to Your Royal Highness for undertaking a long
and arduous journey to be with them at this time, but also to reaffirm their
unswerving loyalty to the Crown, and their enduring affection for yourself.
