Telegram to the President of Liberia on the Death of William T. Francis, United States Minister.
July 16, 1929
I WISH to thank Your Excellency for your kind telegram of condolence upon the death of Mr. Francis, whose loss deprives the United States of one of its most devoted public servants and Liberia of a sincere and loyal friend.
[His Excellency Charles D.B. King, President of the Republic of Liberia, Monrovia, Liberia]
Note: William T. Francis served as United States Minister to Liberia from July 9, 1927, until his death of yellow fever.
