THIRD ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF STATE WASHINGTON

December 15, 1916.

My dear Mr. Tumulty:

The Russian Ambassador has just written me stating that the new Military Attache of his Embassy has not yet had an opportunity of being presented to the President, and asking when it would be convenient for him to present Colonel Nikolaieff.. The Ambassador adds that he will leave Washington for Boston on December 20th, and will return on the 24th or 25th instant. Will you please let me know the President's convenience so that I may inform the Ambassador.

Sincerely yours, William Phillips

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

(THE WHITE HOUSE MAR 24 1917 RECEIVED)

March 23rd, 1917.

Honorable Woodrow Wilson, President of the United States Washington, D.C.

Dear Mr. President:-

64

Permit me to congratulate you upon your wise and noble act of recognizing the new government in Russia, the government of the people. The fact that America was first to recognize the New Russia officially will doubtless serve as a beautiful inspiration both in this country and in Russia. The men who are now at the head of the Russian government have been influenced by American ideals and guided by American traditions. The spirt of America is spreading abroad, and I jeel that you have done more than any American President to extend the influence of American democracy. With highest esteem and the best of wishes, I am, Sincerely and faithfully yours,

Herman Be?

Voie Manke Monsieur le President Woodrow Wilson, Washington.

Je vous remercie très sincerement des sentiments exprimés dane votre telegramme. Comme la Belgique les Etats Unis etaient avant la guerre étranger aux grandes coalitions qui divisaient le monde, mon pays a le premier et contre sol volonté été entraine dans la lutte parce qu’il ne pouvait accepter les conditions insupportables qui lui etaient proposées trente deux mois plus tard, et pour des raisons analogues la grande République Americaine vient de prendre le meme attitude a cause de cette similitude de situation et de decision je me rejouis tout particulièrement de l'acte que sur votre proposition le peuple Americain vient de poser librement.

Translation.

Dated La Panne, West Flanders,

via (Manke?), Belgium.

President Woodrow Wilson, Washington.

I thank you most sincerely for the sentiments expressed in your telegram. Like Belgium, the United States were, before the war alien to the great coalitions which divided the world. My country was the first (being constrained against its will) to be drawn into the conflict because it could not accept the unendurable conditions which were proposed to it. Thirty-two months later, and for analegeus reasons, the great American Republic takes the same position. Because of this similarity of situation and of determination, I am especially rejoiced at the step which, upon your initiative, the American people have freely taken.

ALBERT

His Excellency, Mr. Woodrow Wilson, President United States, Washington.

In answer to Your Excellency's message I am happy, in the name of the Provisional Government and of the Russian democracy, newly liberated from secular oppression, ^the oppression of centuries^ to send our congratulations on account of your magnificent action in declaring state of war between United States and Germany. We all enthusiastically greet the momentous decision which brought the great democracy of the new world to the side of the justice of right, of liberty of small nations against only remnants of theocratic and paternal autocracy and of agressive militarism. We firmly believe that the cause we all fight for will win and that our victory over forces of the past will be accelerated by your
