New York (Jan. 13)
I am pleased to remember that to-morrow is your 60th birthday and to congratulate you most cordially upon this milestone of your useful career of public service in so many constructive philanthropies, not only of distinguished value to the Jewish people but of outstanding benefit for all, especially to children, Mr. Rerbert C. Hoover, the President of the United States, has written to Mr. Felix M. Warburg.
Hundreds of other messages have been received by Mr. Warburg from prominent personages and important institutions in American and abroad. Vice-President Curtis expresses the hope in his message that Mr. Warburg will for many years continue his splendid philanthropic work. Colonel Edward House, who was the confidential representative of the late President Wilson, has written to him that there is not a citizen in America who better deserves higher regard and commendation from his fellow countrymen. The Ambassadors and Consuls in America of many foreign States, like Roumania, Poland, Austria, and Czecho-Slovakia, have sent messages of congratulation to Mr. Warburg.
The American Yiddish papers are all giving up several pages of their issues to-morrow to special articles dealing with Mr. Warburg’s life and activities.
