    "The Boy Scouts International Bureau has officially announced that the member countries of our World Brother hood have accepted our invitation to hold the 11th World Jamboree in Greece. This announcement was received by us, all the Boy Scouts of Greece, with deep gratification and joy. The enthusiasm that has so spontaneously flared up, will light our way and help us to reach the high standard set up by previous Jamborees. It is therefore with the greatest pleasure that I cordially invite you to attend the Jamboree of 1963. A warm welcome will be waiting for you under the blue skies of Greece, where the classical ideals and spirit as well as the glorious vestiges of the past, harmoniously mingle together with modern outlook and beauty and variety of the scenery. Until the day of the great gathering I send by best wished to you all ad let us, in the meantime, scout higher and wider."
