"Gentlemen, dear friends.
The Swedish federation of Sportshooting has commissioned the Sportshooting club of Gothenburg to arrange a competition between the selected teams of USA, Switzerland and Sweden in rapid fire and centre fire.

We are, actually, very glad to get the commission.

We hope that this visit will be a link in a chain of cooperation between our countries so that we for the future may find several opportunities to measure our forces at sportshooting in a spirit of comradeship and sypathatic appreciaiton.

We also hope that this competition will be exciting and interesting and a good preperation for the following passage of arms in Moscow. So hoping, I say: Heartily welcome, dear friends as well to our distinguished guests from USA and Switzerland as to our own Swedish sportsmen."
