The President

      Washington, D. C.
      My dear Mr. President:
You will be glad to know that the visit to Columbia University 
      on Saturday last of Their Majesties, the King and Queen of Great 
      Britain, was quite perfect in every detail. The very admirable 
      and entirely representative audience assembled in honor of Their 
      Majesties was deeply moved, and the impression produced will 
      last through the lifetime of each one of them.
      You and the country as a whole are to be congratulated upon the 
      significance of this royal visit. It goes far beneath the surface 
      of things. It indicates that deep down in the heart and life 
      of the American people there is profound respect and affection 
      for the great political traditions of the English-speaking peoples, 
      which are in all essentials our own.
With renewed congratulations and every good wish, I am
      Faithfully yours,
