President Harding to the Secretary of State

My Dear Mr. Secretary: This is a belated acknowledgment of yours of March first, with which you sent to me your replies to the inquiries instituted by the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations regarding the proposal that we should adhere to the Permanent Court of International Justice at The Hague. You have noted that I promptly submitted your letter to the Senate Committee and I am delighted to say to you that every newspaper reaction has been, to my mind, a favorable one, though it was not expected that the Senate would take any decisive action before adjournment. I think your prompt reply has put the Administration in a position of advantage.

Very truly yours,

Warren G. Harding
