My dear Sir:

Your letter of April 8th has been received and I wish to express to you my appreciative thanks for the courteous sentiments contained therein.

I am, and I may say we are all, friendly to Central America and interested in its future, and it is to such men as yourself who so largely control the destinies of those countries that we look for much disinterested effort in their behalf. The patriotic sentiments which you express are the more welcome as I believe them sincere, and you may always confidently rely upon the friendship of us here in all that pertains to the true welfare of your country.

Mrs. Wilson joins me in sending kind regards to yourself and Senora Bonilla.

Yours sincerely,


Senor Policarpo Bonilla,
Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
