The Secretary of State to the American Chargé d’Affaires.
Washington, March 31, 1911.
Communicate the following to the minister for foreign affairs on April 3:
The Government and people of the United States of America send greetings to the Government and people of the Argentine Republic on this centennial of the birth of the great President Sarmiento, who founded the schools that gave ordered liberty to his country and assured the peace which has made her material and intellectual development the marvel of the last half century. We in the United States of America recall and appreciate his broad pan-Americanism and labors in conjunction with our leaders of intellectual thought which contributed so early and efficaciously to establish a genuine mutual understanding and sincere friendship between the countries.
