The Peruvian Chargé (Gibson) to the Secretary of State


Mr. Secretary: I have the honor to inform Your Excellency that Senor Don Federico Alfonso Pezet, who was appointed Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Peru to the United States by my Government, has arrived in Washington.

Inasmuch as the illness of His Excellency the President will prevent, for the time being, the presentation of Seiior Pezet’s credentials, I beg Your Excellency kindly to extend to him provisional recognition in his high office, thereby enabling him to enter upon the duties of that office pending his official reception.

I avail myself [etc.]

C. D. Gibson
