The American Chargé d’Affaires to the Secretary of State.

No. 984.]

Sir: I have the honor to transmit herewith the annual report for 1910–111 of the Argentine minister for foreign affairs, Dr. Ernesto Bosch, submitted to Congress a few days ago.

After briefly reviewing the efforts made by the three mediating powers in the Peru-Ecuador dispute, the minister closes his reference to the subject in the following sentence:

In this condition the efforts of the mediating powers have remained somewhat paralyzed, it being regrettable that they have not been able up to date to accomplish their high purpose. But it is to be hoped that this purpose will soon be accomplished, provided that Peru and Ecuador share the confidence which the mediating powers are especially desirous of inspiring by this friendly action, which is a disinterested service to safeguard their real interests.

I have, etc.

Robert Woods Bliss.
