The Minister in Colombia (Philip) to the Secretary of State

108. Colombian Foreign Office and press announce that treaty will be discussed by Senate in open session Tuesday the 5th instant. I respectfully suggest that steps should be taken to avoid discussion of confidential agreement and note of Colombian Government signifying acceptance of modifications which I obtained for information of committee only. President in agreeing to publication of the note stipulated that it would be subsidiary [to] ratification in [of] treaty.
