“I am confident that the difficulties which had arisen in the administrative relations of the Government of Israel with the leaders of the Israel bond organization will shortly be overcome as a result of an awaited communication from Mr. Ben Gurion. I appeal to all supporters of the Israel bonds to maintain and intensify their efforts without interruption.”
