Message to the Huguenot Memorial Association.

May 22, 1932

[Released May 22, 1932. Dated May 18, 1932] My dear Mr. Frost:

I will be obliged if you will express my cordial greetings to the members of the Huguenot Memorial Association, and my appreciation of the high social values involved in the preservation of historical traditions through such permanent reminders of the past as the Washington Arch and Memorial Window.

Yours faithfully,


[Mr. Henry D. Frost, President, The Huguenot Memorial Association, Inc., Huguenot Park, Staten Island, N.Y.]

Note: The message was read at dedication ceremonies for a memorial arch and window in the National Huguenot Memorial Church. The ceremonies were part of Staten Island's celebration of the bicentennial of George Washington's birth.
