The President of China to the President


On behalf of the Government and people of China, I thank the Government and people of the United States and yourself for your message of sympathy on the occasion of the death of President Yuan Shih-Kai. Madame Yuan desires me to express to Mrs. Wilson and yourself her heartfelt thanks for your kind expression of sympathy. Guided by the great ideas that have made the United States an enduring republic and a prosperous country, I hope to see realized your wishes for the prosperity of the Chinese people.
