Mr. SPEAKER:

I have the honour to
inform the house that I have received the following letter:
Ottawa, February 11th, 1939. Hon. Pierre Casgrain,
Speaker of the House of Commons,
Ottawa.
Mr. Speaker,
The official commemoration of the August Pontiff Pius XI, made in your honourable House of Commons on Friday the 10th instant, was an eloquent tribute to the memory of the great Head of the Catholic church and generous and indefatigable Protector of suffering humanity.
I wish to offer my deep and heartfelt thanks for this expression of sympathy on the part of the House over which you so worthily preside. I am sure that it will be appreciated at its true value by the noble Canadian people.
Deeply appreciative of the call you were so kind as to make at this legation, I beg you to receive, Mr. Speaker, the expression of my best sentiments.
(Signed) Hildebrando Antoniutti,
Apostolic Delegate.
