Mrs. J. Walter Freiberg, president of the National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods has just made public a telegram in which Queen Marie of Roumania sent her greetings to the 55,000 Jewish women of America who are members of the organization. The National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods had, Mrs. Freiberg said, on the Queen’s arrival in America, sent her a mesage of welcome as an outstanding feminine personality in humanitarian welfare.

In her message sent on behalf of her organization the Sisterhood president had written: “Your personal endeavors to alleviate human suffering in your own country and to develop better understanding between the nations, have won the admiration of every woman who is interested in the welfare of humanity.”

A reply to this message was received today, and was as follows: “Her Majesty deeply touched by the greeting extended through you representing so many women of America. She is especially moved to know that Jewish women have understood her personal effort in the last ten years to relieve human suffering, and through you she extends greetings to your organization.”
