THE SECRETARY OF STATE WASHINGTON

My dear Mr. Tumulty:

I think the enclosed letter to the unofficial commissioner of Albania, would be an adequate reply to his letter addressed to you under date of October ninth.

Faithfully yours,

Bainbridge Colby

The Honorable Joseph P. Tumulty, Secretary to the President, The White House.

October 1920.

Dear Sir:

I have your letter of October 9, in which you request an interview with the President for the purpose of conveying to him the expression of the gratitude of the Albanian people, and refer to the very interesting manifestations of their friendly feeling for the President.

I need hardly call to your attention the very great pressure upon the President’s time, and the difficulty he is under in according interviews. It will give me pleasure to lay your letter before him; and your amiable and friendly sentiments will just as truly reach him in that way as if presented in the manner that you suggest, which, as I say, it would be very difficult for me to arrange.

Mr. Constantine A. Chekrezi, The Portland, Washington, D. C.

THE ALBANIAN COMMISSIONER TO THE UNITED STATES Washington, D. C. "The Portland"

October 15, 1920

Hon. Joseph P. Tumulty, Secretary to the President, The White House, Washington, D. C.

Sir: In acknowledging the receipt of your letter of October 14th, I beg of you to allow me to express my appreciation of your intended action of submitting to the President the contents of my lettero of October 9th. I cannot, however, help deploring the inability of securing an interview with him, though I do recognise the difficulty of the situation, just the same as I do appreciate your kind disposition in your effort to remedy the situation by laying my letter before the President.

In connection with that letter, I beg to state that, through a clerical error, the copy that was mailed to you was a discarded one. Allow me, therefore, to enclose herein the authentic copy with the respectful request that you replace the former by the enclosed one in submitting it to the President.

Availing myself of this occasion, I beg leave to thank you once more for your benevolent statement made to me during our last interview that you will please submit to the President my Memorandum of October 7th.

I am, Sir,

Your most obedient and faithful servant, C. A. Chekrezi

Commissioner of Albania to the United States
