Ambassador Dudley to the Secretary of State.


Ambassador Dudley says he is in receipt of a telegram from the Brazilian minister for foreign affairs, Rio Branco, stating that the President and the Government and people of Brazil are most profoundly honored by the high and exceptional appreciation shown by the President of the United States and the Secretary of State in honor of the late Ambassador Nabuco and his family, and requests that the cordial and grateful acknowledgement of the Government and people of Brazil be communicated to the United States Government.

Mr. Dudley says Ambassador Nabuco is lamented by his countrymen to an extent which few Brazilian statesmen have ever been, and that universal appreciation is manifested for the honors extended to him by the United States. Says the President’s offer of the Mayflower is esteemed as an exceedingly high honor to Brazil.
