File No. 815.00/1235.

The Special Commissioner to the American Minister.


Having satisfactorily attained its principal object, the peace conference suspended its sessions to-day to meet at chairman’s call.

[Page 303]

President’s telegram of approval reached his representative, also other telegrams expressing satisfaction. The representatives believe prompt cooperative action by Congress desirable.

Direct telegraphic communication from Ceiba and here to Paraiso Department is difficult and uncertain; therefore the representatives request that you communicate to the revolutionary leaders there that conference has agreed that peace is assured and urging suspension of their military operations in accordance with bases.

Copy of latter has been telegraphed to President.

Thomas Dawson.
