George S. Hishmeh
Beirut – Lebanon

Heartiest congratulations on your achievement, especially that it comes at the anniversary of the passing away of your father's, may his soul rest in peace.
As a former editor of the The Daily Star of Beirut (in the Sixties) I fully understand the excitement you must feel. In this instance, I would like you to insist that all your country's embassies overseas, especially Washington, to have copies of the paper for anyone wishing to read it.
Again my salaams to you and your staff, and tell them I remember your hospitality during our visit a few years ago to the Yemen Times.
