President Wilson to President Viera of Uruguay


It gives me great pleasure to, acknowledge the reception of the expression of your appreciation of the visit to Uruguayan waters of the United States’ squadron under Admiral Caperton’s command as an evidence of the solidarity of sentiment existing between the Governments of Uruguay and the United States, and I am convinced that a closer and more intimate intercourse among the peoples of America, both through their official and civic representatives, must produce as its one result the development of a still greater continental unity of purpose and policy.

Woodrow Wilson
