tion or commendation from me to the comrades of this Department.
His work is before you. You know with what fidelity and faithfulness
he has served the interests of this Department in the past, and I most
earnestly bespeak for him and his associates in office the same cordial
and hearty co-operation and support that you have always accorded to
me and to my predecessors.

Finally, my comrades, having proved our loyalty and fidelity to our
country and flag, let us be true and loyal to each other, and to the great
principles for which so many thousands of our comrades yielded up their
lives, and thereby prove to the world in the true spirit of fraternity,
charity and loyalty that we are Avorthy of having served our country in
