Britton, Jr. The United States has lost a true friend, and a valued ally in the passinv of Premier Robert L. Bradshaw. His death comes at a time when his State, shich he founded, was barely a step away from independence, and fully ready to joine th councils of nations at the United Nations. A well-read student of American history, Bradshaw took pride in the fact that Alexander Hamilton, first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, was born in Nevis, a part of his state. He was also proud of his ethnic heritage; a pride duly noted when St. Kitts issued one of the first bi-centennial stamps bearing the portraits of Hamilton, and Crispus Attucks. Robert L. Bradshaw fought his way up from the sugar cane fields, to leadership of his fellow workers, into the Colonial Legislature, in 1946. Thus, he was one of the senior parliamentarians of the British Commonwealth. When the newly independent Federation of the West Indies became a nation, he became its Minister of Finance. On its dissolution, he returned to his beloved St. Kitts, and led it into Associated Statehood with Great Britain. His dream of an independent State was near, at his death. Despite the obstacles before him, his perseverence would have carried the day over his opponents, to an independent St. Kitts. [[image]] THEODORE R. BRITTON JR. Although his country was several hundred miles away from the U.S. Embassy in Bridgetown, Robert L. Bradshaw became the first Caribbean head of government to join my family at dinner, after I became ambassador. On State occasions, despite his jibes at wayward Americans who gave comfort to his opponents, he never failed to point up the good things about the U.S., and warmly compared the U.S. Virgin Islands to his own country. It is significant that his good friend, Governor Cyril King, of the Virgin Islands, preceded him in death just a short time ago. Our personal relations were excellent. He never failed to personally drive to St. Kitts' Golden Rock Airport to meet me, or to arise at an early hour to wave goodbye. His pride and joy was a 1933 yellow Rolls-Royce, and Kittitians could knowingly tell who stood high with the Premier on Statehood Day, by observing the dignitary in that car. I can only say in all modesty that it was always assigned to me on my visits to St. Kitts. His passing, to me, therefore, is more than just the loss of the Premier of St. Kitts, or a long-time Caribbean leader. It is the loss of a warm, resolute, friend, who gave his best to the people of his State, and had time not overtaken him, could have given so much to the World. Mr. Britton is a former US ambassador to Barbados and Grenada and special representative to the states of Antigua, Dominica, St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla, St. Lucia and St. Vincent.
