The Minister in Peru ( McMillin ) to the Acting Secretary of State

Confidential. Department’s June 18th, 5 p.m. Yesterday, orally, informally, I intimated to the Minister for Foreign Affairs the course I thought best for Peru in Colombian frontier dispute. The Minister for Foreign Affairs seemed entirely reasonable saying that Peru and Colombia are in substantial accord on arbitration and tribunal, differing as to the extent of territory submitted. He said that Peru is ready to submit all their controversies to the League of Nations.
