May I not convey to Your Excellency on behalf of my Government the feeling of deep appreciation and admiration with which the recent action of the Brazilian Congress with regard to the present struggle for peace and liberty has been received in the United States? I am sure that I speak for my fellow-countrymen in expressing my warm admiration of that action and in expressing the hope that it is prophetic of the action which will be taken by all the American States. I look forward with confident hope to their cooperation in a united movement to check the German menace. Woodrow Wilson.
