    ALWAYS KEEP TO THE STYLE OF
    PLAIN LIVING AND HARD STRUGGLE

    October 26, 1949

    Comrades in Yenan and Fellow-Countrymen in the Shensi-Kansu-Ningsia Border Region:

        I am very happy and grateful to receive your message of greetings. From 1936 to 1948 Yenan and the Shensi-Kansu-Ningsia Border Region were the seat of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the general rear area of the Chinese people's struggle for liberation. The people of Yenan and the Border Region have made great contributions to the whole nation. I wish you continued unity, speedy recovery from the wounds of war and progress in your economic and cultural construction. And I hope that the revolutionary personnel of the whole country will always keep to the style of plain living and hard struggle maintained for more than a decade by the working personnel in Yenan and the Shensi-Kansu-Ningsia Border Region.
