[Released April 4, 1930. Dated April 3, 1930]

I HAVE received Your Excellency's sympathetic telegram with reference to the death of Mr. Albert Henry Washburn. I consider that this Government has lost one of its most able diplomats and I am deeply appreciative of Your Excellency's expression of the sentiments of Austria toward him.
