Dear Mr. Upton,

His All-Holiness our Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew has directed me to communicate with you.

His All-Holiness would like to thank you for sending him a copy of The Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of the World. It is his fervent prayer that there will be greater safety for all Christians as well as greater security for their churches and sacred sites, which, as you well know, are regrettably missing in many places in our world. This is especially the case in the Middle East, where the number of Christians is radically and rapidly diminishing.

Thanking you once again and congratulating you on this important publication, I convey to you the greetings of His All-Holiness, and remain

Sincerely yours,

[signature]
