    Use the ignore functonality to skip the first quotation mark, then read in the string using the getline function while specifying the quotation mark as the delimiter.
    Code:
    #include <iostream> 
    #include <fstream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main() 
    { 
    	ifstream inText("message.txt", ios::in);
    	char message[50] = {'\0'};
    
    	inText.ignore(1);
    	inText.getline(message,50,'"');
    	inText.close();
    
    	cout << message << endl;
    
    	return 0; 
    }
