Washington, D.C


March 24, 1913

We of the Department of State who have served with you during the past four years wish you to know our feelings of sincere regret at the termination of an association which has in so many ways been agreeable and beneficial to us. We feel a deep sense of indebtedness for your thoughtful consideration and for the high and patriotic ideals in public service which you have so consistently exemplified and inspired. In a more personal way, we shall always cherish the sympathetic interest which you and Mrs. Wilson have so uniformly manifested, and the many courtesies you have extended to us.

In separating we ask you to accept the accompanying gift as a token of our friendship and esteem, and to feel that both you and Mrs. Wilson carry with you our most cordial good wishes and the assurance that we shall always maintain a lively interest in your welfare and happiness.

Mr. Huntington Wilson,

Washington, D. C.
