Telegram sent by the passengers of the MS St. Louis to JDC European Director Morris Troper expressing their gratitude for his having found them places of refuge.

The text of the French telegram reads, "907 St. Louis passengers who have been hanging between hope and despair for the past 13 days, today received your news, delivered on 6/13 that definitive arrangements have been made for all the passengers. Our gratitude is as immense as the sea that we have been sailing on since May 13."
