Queen Marie: visit to US was like a dream
Queen Marie of Romania issued a greeting today from the royal palace in Bucharest to William Nelson Cromwell, the president of Friends of Roumania Society. Mr. Nelson delivered the message to President Coolidge.
"My visit to America has passed like a dream, leaving a great flow of love and gratitude. For myself and my children, I send Christmas greetings and best wishes to the people of wonderful America, to one and all, to the humble as well as the great, to those we met and those we regretfully could not meet.
The British-born Queen spent most of the fall traveling throughout the USA. She was accompanied by her two youngest children, Prince Nicholas and Princess Ileana. The trip was cut short, and the Queen and her family returned to Romania, after receiving news of King Ferdinand's declining health.
