Exchange of Messages With President Emilio Portes Gil of Mexico on the Recent Visit of President-Elect Pascual Ortiz Rubio.
I HAVE received Your Excellency's message of January eighteenth. Both Mrs. Hoover and myself were very happy to have the President elect of Mexico and Senora de Ortiz Rubio as our guests. I am most gratified to learn that Senor Ortiz Rubio enjoyed his visit to the United States of America, and I assure Your Excellency that the reception which he received here may be taken as indicating the feeling of friendship which the Government and people of this country bear toward their sister Republic of Mexico.
[His Excellency Emilio Portes Gil, Provisional President of Mexico, Mexico City]

In the name of the people and of the Government of Mexico I take great pleasure in expressing to Your Excellency my most cordial thanks for the welcome shown in the United States to the President-elect of Mexico, Don Pascual Ortiz Rubio and in which different receptions and ceremonies the frank spirit of sincere friendship which happily unites the two countries and Governments was clearly demonstrated.
