Quoted for Information
January 30, 1943
To the Mayor of Salt Lake City, Utah
I acknowledge with thanks the receipt of the copy of the resolution passed by the Board of Commissioners of Salt Lake City on January 7, 1943 in which the Board expressed its gratitude and appreciation for the services rendered by the ship's company of the U.S.S. SALT LAKE CITY in the night action off Savo Island October 11-12, 1942. It is with pride I report that on that occasion every officer and man acted as a fighting entity. It is not improbable that the ship absorbed with its name, the fortitude, the unity of purpose, and the will to achieve, that has characterized Salt Lake City from its founding. The ship is proud of its name.
