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

Legation’s July 6th, 10 a.m., July 18th, noon; Department’s July 7th, 1 p.m. Complying with instructions, I have refrained from acknowledging the note of Minister for Foreign Affairs July 5th.

British Chargé d’Affaires instructed to cooperate with the French, Italian and the United States representatives or a majority. At conference he manifested anxiety to answer note and take up urgent pending commercial negotiations with Peru which he has done. France and Italy also answered the note. Practically all representatives have now acknowledged note. A portion of them stating they have informed their Governments, but without further recognizing Provisional Government.
