File No. 839.00/814.

The President of the Dominican Republic to the President.


I sincerely thank you for the message that Your Excellency has just addressed to me upon learning of my intention to resign the [Page 422] Presidency of the Republic because of my broken health. It would have been my greatest desire to attain constitutional reform and, under protection thereof, that such free elections might be held as would guarantee the peace and the future of the Republic. The renewed assurances of sympathy from Your Excellency to my Government are for me and for the Dominican people a motive of real satisfaction.

President Nouel.
