Viva la Presidente! Fulgencio Batista has been overthrown and it is all thanks to you! Mi Familia and I are so grateful to you for trying to help this country. You know the saying "If you want something done right you must do it yourself"? Well that is exactly what you are doing. I know that whilst we are under your ruling, only great things will happen to this country. I know that you will help the working class and rid us of poverty, famine, and hunger because that is what you have promised us. I put my utmost trust in you and I know that Cuba is in the hands of a very responsible and rresponsible and respectable man and I could not have asked for a greater man to rule our country. Thank you again Presidente and my blessings go to you.
A Thankful Man and his Familia
