Brief Informal Remarks to School Children, Piedmont Park, Atlanta, Ga., Nov. 29, 1935

This is a wonderful reception that you have given me. I am here to extend my greetings through you to all of the boys and girls of Georgia.

I am glad you sang “My Country ‘Tis of Thee”, and I am glad you repeated that fine oath of allegiance to the United States. Good-bye.
