President Hoover to the President of Mexico (Ortiz Rubio)

It is with the deepest regret that I learn of the recent earthquake in Mexico which has wrought such destruction and loss of life. On behalf of the people of the United States and in my own name, I wish to extend to Your Excellency and to the people of Mexico an expression of sincere sympathy.

Herbert Hoover
