In full: "Will you tell our friend, Mr. Andre F. Chevallier, that it was delightful to see this nice Christmas letter to you and to receive the generous supply of what you well termed 'this grand product of our good neighbor to the South of us'? Please tell him, too, that I deeply appreciate his kind thought of me, which recalls many happy incidents of my visits to his country, and convey to him my best wishes for a happy New Year." WITH unsigned carbon typed letter from H.L. Roosevelt to FDR's White House Secretary, Miss M.A. LeHand, December 27, 1935. In full: "I am sending a copy of a letter from Mr. Andre F. Chevallier, Port-au-Prince, Haiti, together with a package for the President, which is referred to in the letter. Will you please say to the President for me that I hope he has not lost his taste for this grand product of our good neighbor to the South of us. I have written to Chevallier saying that I would deliver his gift to the President, who may remember him when he was in Haiti, as one of those good Haitians who served with the Americans in the capacity of secretary of the Gendarmerie." ALSO WITH ALS, December 21, 1935, from Chevallier to H.L. Roosevelt, in French with full English translation, telling him he is "sending you for Christmas two 1/2 cases of rum (gold seal), one for you...while the other I ask you to please deliver to your great cousin, His Excellency, President Roosevelt." WITH unsigned carbon follow-up letter to Chevallier from H.L. Roosevelt, January 3, 1936. In full: "I am enclosing herewith copy of a letter addressed to me by the President as well as copy of my letter to which this is a reply. I have taken great pleasure in suppling (sic) one bottle of the rum, and my only difficulty seems to be in preventing its being consumed by those who haven't the proper appreciation for really good rum. With all best wishes for the New Year to you and yours."
