The President of Brazil to President Taft.


Cordially thank you for condolences which in your name and that of the American people you were so good as to send me on the occasion of the death of Ambassador Joaquim Nabuco.

The Brazilian Nation and its Government receive with keen appreciation the demonstrations of sympathy with which the United States of America join us in our great grief over the loss that Brazil and the cause of Pan Americanism have just suffered.

Nilo Pecanha.
