President Hoover to the Acting President of Guatemala ( Palma )

I have received your courteous communication of December 12 announcing the serious illness of His Excellency President Lazaro Chacon and your assumption of office as Acting President of the Republic. I deeply deplore the affliction which has visited General Chacon and express the hope that he may soon be restored to complete health. I desire also to wish you success, in the high office which has been thus confided to your hands.

Herbert Hoover
