My dear Mr. Ambassador:
Mr. Joaquin Bernando Calvo, for many years Minister of Costa Rica at Washington, informs me that between the sixth and tenth of September he is to go to Mexico, there to spend perhaps two months accredited as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary. Mr. Calvo has very cordial official and also personal relations with us in the Department, and I hope that during his sojourn in Mexico he may see much of you and the members of our Embassy. This will, I am sure, be a pleasure to you not only owing to his thorough knowledge of political affairs but also owing to his agreeable personal qualities.
In giving Mr. Calvo this letter I feel that since you yourself have met him no introduction is necessary.
With kind regards, I am, my dear Mr. Ambassador,
The Honorable David E. Thompson,
