A FINE PRESIDENTIAL LETTER TO THE AMBASSADOR TO BRITAIN, discussing a possible royal visit. “It has been twice suggested to me, probably without his knowledge, that His majesty would like to make a visit to the United States.” Harding advises that if Wallace hears anything about this, “that you do not follow it up except to intimate that you are personally confident such an invitation would be very cordially extended. Then you may let me have your view of the situation.” Together two items.
