Supreme Headquarters
January 14, 1940

From the President of the Republic I have received the following letter:
I congratulate you, mister Field Marshal, and via you the whole of our Army, for those great successes that you have gained everywhere, but in particular at Suomussalmi, where a miraculous historical feat has been achieved. It will remain a bright star of our military history.
