The Acting Secretary of State to the Salvadoran Minister ( Sol )
Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of the note Number 752 dated December 14, 1919 from Señor Don Juan Franco Paredes, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Salvador in which the Minister of Foreign Affairs requests this Government to set forth its interpretation of the Monroe Doctrine because of the bearing which such interpretation might have on the attitude of the Government of Salvador toward the Covenant of the League of Nations.
In reply I have the honor to inform you that the views of this government with reference to the Monroe Doctrine were set forth in the address of the President of the United States to the Second Pan American Scientific Congress, copy of the pertinent portions of which I beg to attach herewith.
