File No. 882.51/182.


Mr. Ambassador: By a letter of January 241 your excellency was good enough to inform me in the name of your Government that the Government of the United States is ready to give the assurances that the Government of the Republic desired to receive before adhering to the North American project concerning Liberia.

I have the honor to take due notice of this declaration.

The agreement on this subject being thus established, the Government of the Republic will have no objection to the putting into effect of the North American project in question under the agreed conditions.

I add that the charge d’affaires of Liberia in Paris signed, on January 13, the act of Franco-Liberian delimitation. The frontier question is therefore now and henceforth settled. Accept, etc.,

S. Pichon.
