File No. 723.2515/113.

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


Peruvian Chargé d’Affaires informs me that yesterday he passed a note to the Chilean Government withdrawing the Legation on account of violent attitude of Chile in regard to Peruvians in Tacna and the inability of the Legation to modify Chilean policy.

He officially requests me to take charge of the archives of the Peruvian Legation. I again quoted telegram March 11 and said that I would ask for instructions. Peruvian Chargé d’Affaires very anxious for reply.
