Please accept this expression of appreciation by the American people and by me of your thoughtful message of congratulations on our Allied victory over Japan.

All the Allies contributed their part to the victory to the extent made possible by their available resources, and we may now all of us look forward to a durable peace and a new prosperity in all the peace loving nations.
