President Coolidge to the Secretary of State

My Dear Mr. Secretary: Replying to your letter of October 15th, suggesting that notice be given to the Government of Panama of the intention to abrogate the Taft Agreement, I am writing to authorize you to inform the Panaman Government that the Government of the United States will abrogate the so-called Taft Agreement on May 1, 1924.

Very truly yours,

Calvin Coolidge
