The Minister for Foreign Affairs of Siam to the Secretary of State.


I received with thanks your excellency’s telegram announcing that the American minister at Bangkok has been designated as special representative of the President of the United States at the cremation of the remains of His Late Majesty, King Chulalongkorn.

I beg to say that His Majesty, my August Sovereign, is profoundly touched by the courtesy thus shown and that the American minister will be favorably received in the capacity your excellency desires.
