    Cataloguer's Note: Original paperwork says text of speech reads: "It is indeed fitting, ladies and gentlemen, that this first Congress of Europe should meet in Holland, which with her neighbours of the the Benelux group is already leading the way by her example and for whose hospitality granted us, we express our gratitude. Indeed, ladies and gentlemen, Benelux, that happy novel term is at once a model and a pioneer for our immediate resolves - the immediate forward step of many other countries".
