President Eisenhower to President Armas – June 3, 1955 – Dear Mr. President: I was extremely gratified to receive your letter of May ninth commending the services of Ambassador Norman Armour.

It was with much regret that I learned from Mr. Armour that he felt the time had come for him to relinquish his duties. I was pleased, however, by his assurance that the initial steps of the economic program in Guatemala were well under way. I recognize, of course, that much remains to be done in order to carry out successfully the plans your government developed during these past critically important months for overcoming the economic emergency brought about by Communist intervention in Guatemala.

I assure you that in the devoted effort of your Government to improve the welfare of the people of Guatemala, you can count on the same friendly cooperation of the United States as was manifested by Ambassador Armour with such distinction and wisdom.
