Woodrow Wilson sends a typed letter of thanks for making sure that his message was properly translated.
Typed Letter Signed: "Woodrow Wilson" as President, 1p, 7x8¾. The White House, Washington, 1913 August 28. To John Barrett, Director General, Pan American Union, Washington. In full: "Allow me to thank you for your kind telegram to Mr. Tumulty and for your friendly interest in seeing that my message was properly translated. I note with gratification what you say of the attitude of the Latin-American Ministers." Tumulty was Wilson's secretary. Barrett, former U.S. Minister to Siam, Argentina, Panama and Colombia, was Director General of the Pan American Union from 1907-1920. The Pan-American Union was founded in 1890 as an international agency of Western Hemisphere nations. It received its name in 1910 with the goal of collecting and distributing commercial information. Later it sought to promote inter-American diplomatic relations and became the permanent Secretariat of the OAS (Organization of American States) in 1948. Within two months of this letter, Wilson pressed the button exploding the Gamoa Dike which opened the Panama Canal for shipping. Smudged because of new typewriter ribbon. Wilson personally typed some of his White House letters and most probably typed this one-a secretary would never have presented this smudged letter to the President for his signature. Lightly shaded at lower left blank margin, else fine condition.
