Banquet speech

Telegram from Rabindranath Tagore, read by Mr. Clive, British Chargé d’Affaires, at the Nobel Banquet at Grand Hôtel, Stockholm, December 10, 1913

I beg to convey to the Swedish Academy my grateful appreciation of the breadth of understanding which has brought the distant near, and has made a stranger a brother.
