Mrs. W.W. Dees,
State Director General
Pan American Round Tables of Texas,
P.O. Box 950,
McAllen, Texas.

My dear Mrs. Dees:

I am writing to congratulate you and your Pan American coworkers most sincerely upon the excellent program which you developed at your State Convention recently. As I stated to your National Director General after we returned to San Antonio, the more I observe the work you ladies are doing, the prouder I feel of you all. The McAllen Chapter made a deep and excellent impression upon me. Again, I commend you Pan American ladies for taking [Illegible word] an active part in the formulation of our Nation's foreign policy in the Western Hemisphere.

Yesterday I sent you a few magazines and pampylets. Some of them are old, but I thought you might find something of interest to your Chapter. The Columbus Memorial Flight had a sad and tragic ending, as you know, yet the material I sent you is interesting even at this late date.

Perhaps you too have read in the press that President Somoza, of Nicaragua, will visit the United States in May. According to to-day's Light, he is to be received by President Roosevelt on May 5th next.

Have noticed in the newspapers lately that a great deal is being said about building the Nicaraguan Canal? I have, and I believe it will be built in the not distant future.

Mrs. Perales joins me in sending you, Mr. Dees and our other Pan-American friends our kindest regards and best wishes.

Sincerely yours,
