London (Jan. 13)
Mr. J. Ramsay Mac Donald, the British Prime Minister, who during his stay in America in 1929, saw a good deal of Mr. Felix M. Warburg (Mr. Warburg headed the Jewish Agency deputation which Mr. MacDonald received in New York, and two or three days later Mr. MacDonald and his party paid a visit to Mr. Warburg’s estate at White Plains and had tea with him there), has through the Jewish Telegraphic Agency sent a telegram of congratulation to Mr. Warburg on the occasion of his 60th. birthday which occurs to-morrow. My heartiest congratulations to you on your 60th. birthday, the Premier writes. May your life still be long and your work prosperous.
Dr. Ch. Weizmann has sent the Jewish Telegraphic Agency the following message: It has been my privilege to work in close association with Mr. Felix M. Warburg for the past four or five years, and I should like on the occasion of his 60th. birthday to express my congratulations and warmest good wishes, together with my deep appreciation of the help and stimulus we have derived from him. His judgment and his generosity alike have been unfailing and it gives me great pleasure to acknowledge the debt of gratitude which I personally, and the Jewish Agency at large, owe him. We all trust that he may have before him many years of fruitful labour in the tasks which he has so auspiciously begun.
Heartiest congratulations to Mr. Felix M. Warburg on the auspicious occasion of his sixtieth birthday, Sir Herbert Samuel writes in a message which he has sent through the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
Dr. Maurice B. Hexter, member of the Jewish Agency Executive, has sent the following message through the J.T.A.: It has been a profound inspiration to work alongside Mr. Warburg in the past several years. In him the Jewish people have a true leader. In common with the multitudes who know him only by name, I extend to him my cordial wishes for as many more years of service for his people, which is more needed now than ever. His kindness and judgment are unfailing.
