Count von Quadt to Mr. Hay .

Mr. Secretary of State: As your excellency is doubtless aware, the President of the United States caused the expression of his sympathy on account of the death of His Majesty King Albert to be conveyed to His Majesty the King of Saxony by Dr. Andrew D. White, United States ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary at Berlin, together with his congratulations on His Majesty’s accession to the throne.

I have the honor, in accordance with His Majesty’s wishes, most respectfully to request your excellency to convey His Majesty’s warmest thanks to the President for this manifestation of his friendship, whereby His Majesty was deeply touched.

Accept, etc.,

A. Quadt.
