Message to the People of Spain on the Unveiling of the Columbus Monument at Palos, Spain.
UPON THE OCCASION of the unveiling of the Columbus Monument at Palos, I have great pleasure in extending to the people of Spain in the name of the citizens of the United States an expression of friendly good wishes and an assurance of the abiding esteem felt in this country for that nation through whose generosity the great discoveries of Christopher Columbus were made possible.
Note: The President's message was read by Ogden Hammond, United States Ambassador to Spain, at the unveiling and presentation ceremony at Palos. The monument was a gift to the Government and people of Spain on behalf of the Columbus Memorial Fund and the people of the United States.
