Paris, 28th December 2012

Dear Mr President,

We were very concerned when we heard that you had been hospitalized and are now relieved to hear that you were discharged from hospital.

You were so kind to accept the patronage of our class at the National School of Administration (“Ecole Nationale d’Administration”) and to come and meet us in Paris in 2001. Ever since that date we are very proud to say that we are the “Nelson Mandela Class”.

The example you set in your struggle against the apartheid regime in order to gain freedom, equality, human dignity and unity for your nation, remains a source fo inspiration for all of us both in our private and professional lives.

We are certain that you will overcome your current set-back in health, just as you have dealt with other hardships in the past, and we wish you a speedy recovery and a happy and healthy 2013.01.28

Yours most sincerely,

Past students of the Nelson Mandela class
Of the “Ecole Nationale d’Administration”
