File No. 20292/2–4.

The President of the United States to the President of Mexico.

My Dear Mr. President: I have your courteous note of June 16th,1 sent me through Judge Wilfley and thank you sincerely for your kindly attitude.

I sincerely hope that in the course of a trip I hope to take in September and October in the Southwest I may have the pleasure of meeting you at El Paso or some convenient station at the border. It would gratify me very much to meet one in the flesh who has done so much to establish order and create prosperity in his own country and in so doing has won the admiration of the entire world.

Sincerely yours,

Wm. H. Taft.
