The Chargé in Mexico ( Summerlin ) to the Secretary of State

No. 3995

Sir: I have the honor to report that the Excelsior of to-day publishes the following autograph letter from the Queen of Holland to General Obregón in reply to General Obregón’s letter of December one, last, announcing his inauguration as President of Mexico:

Wilhelmina By the Grace of God, Queen of the Low Countries, Princess of Orange-Nassau, etc. etc.

To Mr. Alvaro Obregón, President of the United Mexican States:

Great and Good Friend: I duly received your letter of December 1, 1920, in which you were so good as to inform me that, having been called by the will of your fellow-citizens to occupy the Presidency of the Republic, you took possession of your high office on that date.

In thanking you for this important communication, I take pleasure in assuring you that I also will do all I can to draw closer and make even stronger if possible the friendly relations which exist between our two countries.

With pleasure I avail myself of this opportunity, Mr. President, to offer you my best wishes for the prosperity of the Republic as well as for your personal happiness.

Done at The Hague, on the 29th day of April of 1921.

Your Good Friend,

(Signed) Wilhelmina

(Countersigned) V. Karnebee[k].”

I have [etc.]

George T. Summerlin
