March 5th, 1913.

Dear Mr. President:

Tomorrow, March 6th, is the 300th anniversary of the accession of the Imperial House of Romanoff in Russia.

The occasion is to be solemnly commemorated and our Ambassador at St. Petersburg cables that congratulations from the chiefs of other countries will be sent. I enclose a copy of a telegram received yesterday from Ambassador Guild in which he emphacizes the advisability and importance of your sending a congratulatory telegram on this occasion. As the recommendation appears to be practical and appropriate I take the liberty of enclosing a draft of a telegram which, if it meets with your approval, can be forthwith despatched.

Very respectfully, Mel Knox

The President. The White House.
