500.C114/482

The Secretary of State to the Costa Rican Minister ( Oreamuno )

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note dated January [March ?] 26, 1926, in reply to a note of my Government of February 12, 1926, concerning the reservations and understandings contained in the Resolution of the Senate of the United States of January 27, 1926, giving its advice and consent to the adherence of the United States to the Protocol of Signature and Statute of the Permanent Court of International Justice. It is noted that your Government, in view of the fact that it will cease to be a Member of the League of Nations on January 1, 1927, does not feel that it is its duty to decide in regard to the desired acceptance. My Government would be grateful to be informed whether Costa Rica intends likewise to withdraw its acceptance of the Protocol of Signature and Statute of the Permanent Court of International Justice at the same time as it withdraws from the League of Nations.

Accept [etc.]

Frank B. Kellogg
