Mr. Secretary: I have been especially charged by my Government, and I now have the honor, to express to Your Excellency the sincere gratitude of the kindred of the young students, Cortés Rubio and García Gómez, for the courtesies and attentions which President Hoover, the Governor of the State of Oklahoma, and the Department of State rendered on the occasion of their death and the taking of the bodies to Mexico.

In requesting Your Excellency to be good enough to transmit to President Hoover and to Governor Murray, and also to accept for yourself, the expression of the gratitude of the families of the two young men, I take pleasure in renewing to you the expression of my highest consideration.
