Letter from John Hay to Theodore Roosevelt

Hay, John, 1838-1905
Secretary Hay jokes about Albert von Quadt-Wykradt-Isny's inquiry and his own response regarding the "Chinese medal" sent to President Roosevelt from Emperor William II. Hay did state that Roosevelt appreciated the medal and a formal acknowledgment would be sent to the German government.
