This influential French politician and long-time senator, that country's ambassador to the United States (1926-27), headed high-level foreign affairs committees in the 1930s and in 1932 was appointed French delegate to the League of Nations. ALS, 1p, 5¼" X 8¼", Paris, France, 6 October 1934. On letterhead of the "Commission des Affaires Etrangeres," Berenger handsomely pens a patriotic if ill-fated sentiment in English in dark purple ink, presumably to an American: "Independence has been the foundation and maintenance of our two Democracies. They have never ceased to strive for greater right and justice among all citizens and all men. They are now exerting a like effort towards the end of all war and the establishment of lasting peace among all peoples of good will." Boldly signed at the close, with his title "ambassador of the French Republic"
