The President to the President of Brazil.


On the departure today of your Special Ambassador, Doctor Lauro Müller, on his homeward voyage I wish to express to Your Excellency the heartfelt pleasure which the Government and people of the United [Page 73] States felt at welcoming this distinguished citizen and representative of your friendly Nation. Permit me to hope that in returning to his own country he will carry with him memories of his visit as delightful as those which it has left with us all.

Woodrow Wilson.
