"To My Friends in the South Pacific,

I am delighted, and flattered that you have thought to attach my name to the fine restaurant at beautiful Iririki Island Resort in Port Vila Harbour. Many of the fondest memories of my travels stem back to my years of military service in the New Hebrides - now Vanuatu - during the Pacific War years of the early 1940’s.

While those beautiful islands have changed much with progress in the ensuing years, I know from subsequent visits, that the friendliness of the peoples, their infectious smiles and their openheartedness will remain forever one of life’s treasures.

I wish all who read this, good dinning, good companionship and good traveling through my beloved South Pacific.

With Warm Wishes,

James A. Michener" -- Texas Centre for Writers, Austin, Texas 1994.
