File No. 718.1915/238.

Chargé Endicott to the Secretary of State.


Costa Rican Minister for Foreign Affairs has verbally requested me to inform you that an extraordinary mission from Panama headed by Santiago de la Guardia accredited as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary has arrived at San José with the object of reaching an agreement to modify the boundary question decided by the Chief Justice; that the Costa Rican Government refuses to treat of this matter with Guardia as it considers that it should be settled by the judgment; and that the only thing that the Costa Rican Government desires is to proceed as soon as possible to matter of delimitation, for which it counts on the good offices of the United States.
