King Frederik thanks Americans

August 7, 1908

King Frederik VIII and Queen Louise of Denmark had lunch today with a party of 400 Danish Americans in Copenhagen, reports the New York Times.

Colonel Listoe, who lives in New York,  conveyed President Roosevelt's greetings to the Danish sovereigns.  King Frederik responded gracefully with his "best wishes for the President Roosevelt and the United States."

The royal couple spent time talking with a number of the American, including several doctors.
