PRINCE SAYS THANKS
H. R. H. the Duke of Edinburgh sent a thank-you telegram to
the governments and peoples of the British West Indian islands
which he has been visiting. Saying that he had much enjoyed "the
kindly hospitality, glorious climate and the natural beauty of the
Carribbean Islands," the Duke's message continued: "I am taking
ever with me many memories of the friendliness and gaiety of the
people of the islands, and a deep impression of the vitality and
enthusiasm of the schools and voluntary organizations.
Many people have taken part in the arrangements for my visit,
and I wonid like them all to know how much I appreciate their hard
work. This has been a wonderful experience for me, and these.
visits have made me much better informed about the difficulties as
well as the hopes and aspirations of the people. I hope that the
future will bring much progress and growing prosperity to all the
islands. PHILIP"
